Hi and welcome
can you open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and do the following


lsusb | grep -i net > wireless.txt


iwconfig >> wireless.txt


lshw -C network >> wireless.txt
and post the wireless.txt document here?
:-)

try usb-modeswitch http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/karmic/en/man1/usb_modeswitch.1.html
so that the device is recognised as a wireless usb...my worst fear is that this is a bug :-s

I'm not sure of the exact usage and I don't want to guess and mess you around...if you read the above link and can't get your head around it post back and hopefully someone with a bit more experience will jump in :-) I've only ever done it once so not an expert :-)

I found a tutorial in my notes regarding your ZTE device.

It was intended for Jaunty but might still help.

I've had plenty of adventures with ZTE bb modems and ubuntu, and I know that Network Connection Settings are crucial.
So now I've just had a 3day wrestle with the settings since reinstal of 10.4, I've done a step-by-step guide
Here it is, but I wonder if there's a better place to put it.
Oh I cant do it, file too big, screenshots 'n'all.

But until I get that together,
one crucial thing is Plan Name , if you're on one. Select "My plan is not listed"
