Huawei E160E (Orange 3G+) on Debian Lenny

As seen on the Internet:

# /etc/chatscripts/orange
ABORT BUSY
ABORT "NO CARRIER"
ABORT VOICE
ABORT "NO DIALTONE"
ABORT ERROR
'' ATZ
# Check SIM pin should return ready
OK-AT-OK 'AT+CPIN?'
## OK-AT-OK 'AT+CPIN="...."'
OK-AT-OK 'AT+CGDCONT=?'
OK-AT-OK 'AT+CGATT=?'
OK-AT-OK 'AT+CGREG=?'
# Verify we are connected to a network (will show the network name)
OK-AT-OK 'AT+COPS?'
OK-AT-OK 'AT+CGDCONT=3,"IP","orange.fr"'
OK-AT-OK 'AT&FE0Q0V1'
OK-AT-OK 'ATD*99***3#'
CONNECT ""

and

# /etc/ppp/peers/orange
noauth
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/orange"
debug
/dev/ttyUSB0
user "orange"
password "orange"
defaultroute
noipdefault
noccp
novj

then:

pon orange

(I’m not 100% sure “noccp” and “novj” are needed, but it works.)

Update: I've since installed Ubuntu "Netbook" on my Asus EeePC; the Huawei key is recognized and proper scripts provided for Orange.fr out of the box.
