Hi everyone, For a couple of days now, I try to get my HUAWEI USB Modem to work with Ubuntu Jaunty. I have no problems connecting via XP. I search the web for some help, but it seems that not many people have problems with it. Ubuntu recognizes the device corretly and I can set up a mobile boradband connection via the network manager. But for some reason I cant connected. If I try to connect via the created connection with the network manager, the message pops up, that the connection is disconnected. Anybody out there who can give me some hints? Are there any special settings I have to put in? Thanks Bj÷rn

I was able to get the Optus one working off the bat - but the 3 usb modem took some serious tweaking.

What is the value of the "Carrier APN" in network manager? Is it set to "vfinternet.au"? (something I came across - can't hurt to try).
