There is a GUI program that makes connecting to a USB modem very easy. I have used it successfully on several laptops running 10.04 and 10.10. It is quite simple to setup and use:

Hi

you mentioned in a PM the device works in 9.10 but 10.10

the thing of note in 10.10 usb_modeswitch is installed at default

so need to know if usb_modeswitch is installed on 9.10

also could you do this:

from both operating systems :

boot up without the device.

open up a terminal and enter the following code.

Code:

lshal -m

this will monitor hald

connect the device.

follow the procedure to get the devices recognized (the os which works)

also post details of the commands you sending

also post details of

Code:

grep Qualcomm /var/log/syslog

ADDED can you have a look in this file on both systems see if any differences
usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/10-modem.fdi

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~
one way to influence the mode_switch is to edit the usb_modeswitch.conf

can be access and edited with this command.

sudo gedit /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf

the file should show
# Configuration for the usb_modeswitch package, a mode switching tool for
# USB devices providing multiple states or modes
#
# This file is evaluated by the wrapper script "usb_modeswitch_dispatcher"
# in /usr/sbin
# To enable an option, set it to "1", "yes" or "true" (case doesn't matter)
# Everything else counts as "disable"


# Disable automatic mode switching globally (e.g. to access the original
# install storage)

DisableSwitching=0


# Enable logging (results in a extensive report file in /var/log, named
# "usb_modeswitch_<interface-name>"

EnableLogging=0

to disable set the line

DisableSwitching=0

to
DisableSwitching=true

if this has no effect then just reverse the changes

POST DETAILS OF all outputs denoting which is relevant to each OS

http://www.sakis3g.org/

Hello , I have tried the program but I am getting the error message
Unable to locate a configuration file for switching device 05c6:1000

I have a Qualcomm usb modem as detected by lsusb command and I ran the program through the Terminal interface

I would be so grateful if you would be able to help me

Can you confirm the program was installed correctly? Did you follow the procedures for Ubuntu shown here?

Its much better to use ppp dialer to connect, the broadband has so may issues and fails at times. if you are on debian, Try the following.
open the terminal
type the following command
sudo apt-get install gnome-ppp
