    Have you got the USB modem? If so, did you plug it in?

    Hi MustafaJF

    No sure about wimax modems but at least can find out what state the device is in

    Going to need Two test results from the terminal one , Device plugged before boot and on plugged after boot

    Prior To
    If have alternate connect for your Ubuntu version update the use ID's

    From the terminal

    Code:
    sudo /usr/sbin/update-usbids
    the code to execute for the results
    Code:
    usb-devices
    look for the lines which indicate the device and post only those lines
    but if both results are the same post only one result

    BR

    No.

    Do this:

    Open a terminal
    Unplug the USB-modem, and type

    Code:
    lsusb
    Plug in the USB-modem, and again type

    Code:
    lsusb
    Then find the new line. Post that whole line here, and google USB-ID.

    Furthermore, after plugging in the USB-modem, in the terminal type

    Code:
    dmesg
    and copy-paste the screen in this thread

    Re: install wimax usb modem "huawei BM338" driver on ubuntu 12.04

    Hi MustafaJF


    Does not look correct , so did search

    found a couple pointing in the same direction

    this site here seems to be more help .
    http://minhazulhaque.blogspot.co.uk/...inux-mint.html



    Possible need the xvfz Sprint4GDeveloperPack

    Since you are on 12.04 then everything Kernel wise should be OK so if decide to try it , leave the Kernel related stuff as is
    did a check on my system and everything that side looks OK.


    Like I said , don't know about connecting Wimax , but have resonable Remberance they may need the stuff from Sprint.

    So Pretty much on your own as to the decision.

    HTH
