USB modem stick

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – 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. Preferably I would like to buy a new stick which is Linux enabled, but if not then can this stick be re-programmed, please? Thank you! (HowTos)
