I have been having trouble trying to get my internal modem to work on my Thinkpad T61. I used the scanModem program and followed the instructions but it still does not work.
I am using Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty.

I have this ZTE MF626 3G modem, which works flawessly on my netbook. However, yesterday I installed Karmic on a Thinkpad T40, and the same modem doesnt get recognized when I plug it. I know the modem is ok, because I plugged it back on my netbook and worked ok. Also (this may be related) I was unable to install from a -usb stick, it froze in the middle of the install.
I have a third-hand hand-me-down Thinkpad R60e whose internal modem works well on dial-up when running on its hard drive's Windows XP, but I can't achieve dial-up when I run the laptop on Mint Maya installed on a flash drive with Gnome-PPP.
Earlier I used Windows 7 and the modem used to work absolutely fine. Even when it disconnected it used to reconnect automatically without any trouble. But then I installed Ubuntu 11.10 on dual boot and set up the modem connection properly but the modem now disconnects much more frequently(eariler it disconnected once in 5 hours or so and after ubuntu in 5 minutes!!).
My Netgear A6200 USB Modem does not work with Ubuntu 12.10 running on either a i7(2.4 Mhz w/8GB RAM, two 500GB HDs & eight USB 2.0 ports) desktop or a HP/Compaq Mini 110c Netbook (running 12.04). The A6200 modem is simply not recognized. Several older Netgear modems work with Ubuntu 12-10 fine. I tried A6200 on Wine and on a virtual Windows disk, but that was no help.
In Ubuntu 12.10 USB-modem Huawei 171 from MTS is not connected to the network. First on the message "Are you registered on the network", immediately after that, "You are disconnected from the network." This happened after there was an internal error notification Ubuntu. I did not pay attention, and closed by sending the report. After the reboot does not work. Settings are not changed.
