huawei e303 stick on mikrotik routerboard


To get the stick running with mikrotik routeros it’s mode has to be changed to serial modem.
I do this with my ubuntu 14.04 workstation.

First install usb-modeswitch and minicom:

aptitude install minicom usb-modeswitch

Now plug in your stick configure the ip-address of the usb network interface. We also have to set the ProjectMode via http request.

ifconfig ethx netmask

Afterwords fireup minicom and change modem to modem mode (turn off hardware flow control)

minicom -D /dev/ttyUSBx

Paste the following code to minicom terminal


When you plug in the stick to the routerboard now you get an pppx dialer interface.

Have fun!
