Help required Installing 3G modem In Ubuntu.

    As title looking for some help installing a Three, 3g model in Ubuntu 9.10.Model is a Huawei E1750.

    Thanks in advance.


    which version of ubuntu?

    If its a recent version, most of the time it detects them ok and network manager prompts to configure, run the following with the modem plugged in

    lsmod | grep option

    Normally they use the option driver to operate and create some USB Serial interfaces in /dev/ttyUSB0, 1, 2 for operation.

    Thanks for the reply it's 9.10 will give it a go cheers.

    Another thing to try is running tail -f /var/log/syslog in a terminal window BEFORE you plug in the modem and watch for the detection routines
