I have an USB (Huawei 1751) modem for mobile broadband. I had it up and running in Ubuntu 9.10 but I had to clear the computer for various reasons.
I have decided to only use LTS versions so for the reinstall I have used Ubuntu 8.04 LTS.
I have downloaded and installed usb_modeswitch and can see that the modes IS changed to the right value.
After that I wanted to add a new mobile broadband connection in the network connections wizzard - but cannot see any settings for mobile broadband. I am sure it must be possible - but where is this function hidden in version 8.04 ?
