Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I tried switching the USB ports and have some information which could 
help you to help me :

usbconfig -u 0 -a 2 dump_device_desc :
ugen0.2: <HUAWEI Mobile HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST 
spd=FULL (12Mbps) pwr=ON

   bLength = 0x0012
   bDescriptorType = 0x0001
   bcdUSB = 0x0110
   bDeviceClass = 0x0000
   bDeviceSubClass = 0x0000
   bDeviceProtocol = 0x0000
   bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0040
   idVendor = 0x12d1
   idProduct = 0x140b
   bcdDevice = 0x0000
   iManufacturer = 0x0001  <HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES>
   iProduct = 0x0002  <HUAWEI Mobile>
   iSerialNumber = 0x0004  <>
   bNumConfigurations = 0x0001

usbconfig -u 0 -a 3 dump_device_desc :
ugen0.3: <Back-UPS ES 650Y-IN FW:853.m4.I USB FW:m4 American Power 
Conversion> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=LOW (1.5Mbps) pwr=ON

   bLength = 0x0012
   bDescriptorType = 0x0001
   bcdUSB = 0x0110
   bDeviceClass = 0x0000
   bDeviceSubClass = 0x0000
   bDeviceProtocol = 0x0000
   bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0008
   idVendor = 0x051d
   idProduct = 0x0002
   bcdDevice = 0x0006
   iManufacturer = 0x0003  <American Power Conversion>
   iProduct = 0x0001  <Back-UPS ES 650Y-IN FW:853.m4.I USB FW:m4>
   iSerialNumber = 0x0002  <BB0926005982  >
   bNumConfigurations = 0x0001

Now what should my devfs.conf contain ? Currently it contains the 
following :

link cuaU0.0 modem
own modem root:operator
perm modem 666

link ugen0.3 usv
own usv root:operator
perm usv 666

link cuaU0.1 apcups
own apcups root:operator
perm apcups 666

Obviously, these entries are incorrect since neither my modem speaks to 
the internet nor is any signal from the APC UPS recognized. I believe 
once I have the correct devfs entries, the whole system should work 
smoothly. But please correct me if I am wrong.

Surprisingly, /etc/usb_modeswitch.d contains no entries for 12d1:140b or 
051d:*. Do I need to reinstall usb_modeswitch.d ? Or can usbconfig 
configure the devices correctly ? I am no expert here, so if yes, I 
would need the complete commands.

Thanks for any help. I am greatly indebted to FreeBSD and its philosophy 
making things 'as simple as possible, but not any simpler' - which has 
helped me learn a great deal about computers in general and managing my 
own computer in particular. But the USB related stuff still beats the 
hell out of me, so I need help here.

BTW, my system now has the usbdump command (installed from sources 
downloaded from http://biot.com/usbdump/) but no manpage.


Thanks again &
