http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, i have a little problem Huawei E353 3G modem usb dongle. I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit on my laptop and i read that 12.04 should support that modem out-of-box. Apparently the truth isn't that nice. I assume the problem is with the device's product identifier number (PID). Kernel module called "option" try to find device with VID 0x12D1 and PID 0x1506, but because my dongle is branded by an operation the PID has been changed to 0x151A. I assume its still same device tho. So i guess that i have to make an alias for the device, but is this any way possible without recompiling (Hardware)
