I got this wireless usb dongle for work and cannot figure out how to get it working.

ZTE Corp

I am using ubuntu 10,04. on an acer extensa 5235 laptop

I previously had a vodafone wireless dongle and was able to get that working using betavines software but I havent been able to find an equivalent for my current dongle.

Unfortunately our company switched providers.
My boss was trying to make me install windows to use this usb dongle...I said no way ,there has to be a way to get it working on ubuntu.

Can anyone help?

You can see the connection type by looking on the modem surface - it'll have an led shining through the plastic when it's connected, and the colour tells which speed it's connected at: deep blue = 3G. Other options are red, sky blue for GPRS and Edge.
