-====== Introduction ====== 
  
-The purpose of this project is to eventually have multiple connectivity links to 3GPP mobile operators for the purpose of running Ooni probes over their networks individually. 
- 
- 
-To do this, I need to start and install, configure and setup one 3G modem. From [[http://​elinux.org/​RPi_VerifiedPeripherals#​USB_3G_Dongles|reading Internet documentation]] about which 3G modems are supported by Debian in general, ​ 
-I've decided to use my two Huawei modems - 1 [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Huawei_E220|Huawei E220]] ​ 
-and 1 [[http://​3g-modem.wetpaint.com/​page/​Huawei+E172|Huawei E172]].

-===== Setup 3G Modem on Debian ===== 
- 
-To make installation and configuration of APNs as easy as possible, [[http://​shkspr.mobi/​blog/​2012/​07/​3g-internet-on-raspberry-pi-success/​|I am going to follow these steps from Terence Eden's blog]]. ​ 
-In order to make my life easier, I'll archive his steps: 
- 
-  - Use a powered USB hub! The 3G radio takes more power than the Pi's USB sockets can supply. 
-  - Install the ppp package. 
-    * sudo apt-get install ppp 
-  - Install [[http://​www.sakis3g.org/​|sakis]] (which is described as "the All-In-One script for connecting 3G modem"​) 
-    * wget http://​www.sakis3g.org/​versions/​latest/​armv4t/​sakis3g.gz 
-    * gunzip sakis3g.gz 
-    * chmod +x sakis 
-    * ./sakis3g --interactive 
-  - When you have sakis3g running, you can then look for the operator you are connected to and configure it via the menuing system.
