Title: Windows Desktop App to collect diagnostics on USB internet dongle

Technologies: .Net or python

Description:

To Build a windows application that dumps all the messages passed between the internet dialler application and the USB internet dongle.

The USB dongle can be a locked one as in Airtel , tata photon+ branded or unlocked one like Huawei e303c etc.

When a USB internet dongle is inserted to the Windows system, the following happens

Scenario 1: Inserted for the first time:
1. Detected as cdrom and the driver along with the internet dialler application is automatically installed.
2, Then modem is detected.
3. internet dialler is used to dial the modem to connect to internet

Scenario 2: Inserted for the second or more time:
1. CD rom is detected and immediately switched to Modem (since the necessary drivers are already installed)
2. internet dialler is used to dial the modem to connect to internet

The application should capture all the USB packets sent from the driver to the USB device in the scenario 2 at step1 and step2 in individual files. For reference check applications like USBlyzer.
Along with this information application should also capture the make of the dongle , whether it is locked or not , network provider, other supported networks, modem type(2.5g, 3g, 4g, etc) , windows user name,location.

The application should be intelligent enough to run and gather all the information without prompting the user to input any details.
The responsibility of the user is only to start the app and store the output file.

Setup:
Install latest wordpress.

Create a wordpress page . Remotely admin should be able to push notification to the webpage.
It is desirable that this is push notification from server rather than pull from webpage.
You are free to figure out the most UX friendly notification prompt like pop up in a corner, modal box or Top bar or entirely different technique. User should be able to close the notification. Same should work on mobile browsers.

Usecase:
User has opened a webpage which hosts a live video of an event. For some reason the event is delayed. The admin wants to inform all the users who have the page currently opened, that the event is delayed . The message or notification should also pop out when a new visitor opens the webpage during this time.
The admin shall be able to withdraw the notification. So on all the current webpages the notification disappears automatically. and doesnot not show up when new visitors open the page.
The admin should also be able to replace the message string in the notification. Which is same as withdrawing and showing the notification again with different message.

Other examples of such notification messages are coffee break, lunch break etc during a live event.
