I have recently bought a Huawei E355 Wifidongle/datacard. The problem is that when i connect it to my machine (OS:ubuntu 11.10) even though wifi is detected properly and i am able to connect to internet through wifi, i am not able to do so through 3g. in short, even though i am able to use it as a wifi hot spot, i am not able to use it as a 3g usb.
i have already installed the huawei driver for linux OS but after doing so the network manager shows the connection as a wired connection which is disconnected. when i try to create a mobile broadband connection by clicking on edit connections->mobilebroadband->add i am not able to choose the huawei device. effectively,i am not even able to create a mobile broadband connection as the device is not shown there. i have attached the relevant screen shots. Experts please help.
