The default vendor and product ID for the E353 are given as 12d1:1446 in the Mobile Broadband Wiki. The E353 I purchased yesterday appears to be another revision, since its default vendor and product ID are 12d1:14fe. The stick's model number is given as E353 on its outside but as E353s-2 under the cover, above the IMEI and serial number.

After a bit of searching here and on the wider internet I was able to cobble together the following usb_modeswitch that allows this revision of the E353 to be recognised by build 18777.

Code:

usb_modeswitch -v 0x12d1 -p 0x14fe -V 0x12d1 -P 0x1506 -M "55534243123456780000000000000011062000000100000000000000000000"

Do you get the modem fully working (can connect) when you do the manual modeswitch?
I guess you do since 12d1:1506 is a common and supported modem id so should load the correct drivers for you.

Can you please do me a favour and give me output from cat /proc/bus/usb/devices when the stick is not switched (cd-rom mode).

Can you also check if the modeswitch message works if you don't specify the target (modem mode) vid:pid in the modeswitch command.
It is better if the 12d1:14fe is not "locked" into switching to a certain modem id, the cd-rom id may be used for other sticks with different target id and Huawei sticks usually don't need the target id for the modeswitch.

Thanks for looking into this. Yes, it connects when I do the manual modeswitch.

Here's the cat /proc/bus/usb/devices output before doing the modeswitch.

Code:

T:  Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#=  2 Spd=480  MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=12d1 ProdID=14fe Rev= 1.02
S:  Manufacturer=HUAWEI
S:  Product=HUAWEI Mobile
C:* #Ifs= 2 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr=500mA
I:* If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=08(stor.) Sub=06 Prot=50 Driver=(none)
E:  Ad=0f(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms
E:  Ad=8f(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms

And here's the output after doing the modeswitch without specifying the target.

Code:

Thanks, I have added the stick in the Mobile Broadband wiki and it will be fully supported in next public release build.

Please give me a heads up then so I can file it as Confirmed working in the wiki page.

I look forward to the build and will do so. Just as a note for that update to the wiki, so I don't forget to mention it, the box and my searches indicate that the 3G Standard entry for this stick should be HSPA 21.0/5.76.

I have also the same Huawei E353 and I can't get the 3G / WAN connection. The latest firmware I found was: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (06/08/12) std SVN revision 19342.

cat /proc/bus/usb/devices output is the following:
