I seek a Linux-capable USB modem stick to work with Kubuntu 12.04 on my laptop. I have opened a mobile broadband account with Iprimus and they have sent me a HUAWEI Mobile Connect Model E160E HSDPA USB stick which works well with Windows and for a while did so also with Linux. But it now no longer does and from asking around I have gathered that this particular stick can be temperamental.
After upgrading to 14.1 RC1 my Huawei E160E USB modem fails to connect using NetworkManager.
Inspection of the output from dmesg shows this:
NetworkManager: <info> (cdc-wdm0): device state change: prepare -> failed (reason 'gsm-registration-timeout') [40 120 32]
I have restored my ability to connect by reverting to:
Not in some time have I used Slackware but after coming back to Linux and playing with a few distros -Slackware is still the most elegant and stable distro in my opinion. Steam and CS:Source are running great! Super smooth - no different than playing on Windows! *lol* Wireless was pretty easy and Nvidia driver install was a snap.
I have an Acer Aspire 4736Z running Ubuntu 9.10 dual boot with Windows XP (for work). Ubuntu recongnizes the modem but it won't connect. I've searched the Linux forums for help but most are too technical for me. I've been using Ubuntu for about 3 years now, but haven't really gotten into scripting and making changes to configuration files.
Hy. Sorry for my english. I have a problem with ubuntu 9.10 x32. I have a canon multifunctional printer mp190 and ubuntu does not have drivers for it . And the biggest problem is with my usb modem from vodafone: huawei K3765, ubuntu does not detect it. I have a second modem huawei e220 from orange but ubuntu has detected and is working properly.
I first started with Slackware, afterwards Debian, College Linux, Ubuntu, and now here I am running #!. There were a plethora of others I tried but didn't stick with them for any amount of time. Linux has come a long ways and it is easy than ever to use now depending on which distro you are using. Ubuntu, Opensuse, Fedora for instance works pretty much out of the box.
