View Full Version : [lubuntu] Lubuntu 10.04 can't seem to use Mobile Broadband

Hi Again, All!

I'm having a bit of trouble with a persistent/live install of Lubuntu 10.04 on a portable hard drive (a LaCie 320GB Rikiki USB-HDD).

I'm trying 10.04 because when I tried to install Lubuntu 10.10, I couldn't connect to wireless networks at all. I seem to be able to do so with 10.04. However, I can't seem to get the Mobile Broadband option on the connection icon. I've installed the same drivers and used the same log on information that works just fine with my live installs of Linux Mint and Peppermint. So I don't think those are amiss.

Does anyone out there know why Lubuntu not be able to connect with a Mobile Broadband device? Is there something I need to update or get from Synaptic?
