Does anyone how to get this wireless modem from Novatel (model MC950D) working? I tried to follow the directions I was sent from Novatel's site, but no such luck!

It all started going amiss with the terminal line commands not fulfilling their promise (as such).

What I was supposed to do, apparently, was:

sudo modprobe –r usbserial
(then enter my password)

sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x1410 product=0x4400
(to load the generic driver)

sudo dmesg | grep –i ttyUSB
(to verify the driver commands)

I was suppossed to get results like this:
usb 5-1: generic converter now attached to ttyUSB0
usb 5-1: generic converter now attached to ttyUSB1

But nothing happened!

Has anyone out there had success getting this wireless modem to work on Ubuntu that can give me some pointers?
