I have Ubuntu 11.10. I have 2 USB Modems.
The Huawei E160 was 'picked-up' plag-n-play into my machine, the 'Safaricom' interface installed and I'm able to access internet; both via interface and through Network Manager. It's a GSM network/sim.
The problem is the black ZTE MF192 modem. It's not 'picked-up' by my computer. Network Manager doesn't recognize a wireless device has been connected. I fiddled with the 'Orange' interface software in the modem and managed to install it. Both, directly to Ubuntu and the Windows-version via Wine. Both softwares will load, but neither makes the USB Modem work. It's a CDMA network/sim and works perfectly in Windows 7.
What do I do to make it work?
