    I am trying to run Teracom LW273 3G dongle to run on my ubuntu 13.10 (64-bit), but I am unable to do so...

    I have seen a lot of links on how to install it on ubuntu, but it seems to be completely different problem

    when the dongle is unplugged and i tru lsusb i get

    Code:
    root@gaurav-Lenovo-IdeaPad-Y500:/home/gaurav# lsusb

    Re: unable to mount the usb 3g dongle

    i would suggest that you should install wvdial and its dependent packages and edit the /rtc/wvdial.conf file so as to enter your uname and passwd,and after then it will work fine by just running sudo wvdial fron the terminal.........
