View Full Version : [ubuntu] mobile broadband usb modem loses connection

September 17th, 2011, 01:08 PM
I am on Ubuntu 11.04 on a ThinkPad X120e from a Wubi install, and am using a Huawei E1752 usb modem to connect to the internet. Upon logon, it automatically connects to the net, and everything works fine. But if a pass an area with no signal (e.g. while on the train) the connection disappears. Even after entering an area with signal again, ubuntu does not recognize that I have the USB modem in. The lamp on the modem blinks, so it is plugged in, but is not recognized. Logging out and in again does not solve the problem, but restarting completely does.

Any ideas?

Thanks very much!
