View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unable to mount VISIONTEK 82 GH (3g modem) !

June 1st, 2012, 06:12 AM
I just installed Ubuntu 12 on a separate partition .

I have a Visiontek 7.2Mbps HSUPA Modem - BSNL 3g. I plugged it in and entered the necessary details when asked. And it shows it is registered on the Home network.

But an error message came up ' Unable to mount Visiontek 82 GH'. Obviously the dialer could not be installed.

So, how do I get to use my 3g modem with Ubuntu 12?

thank you

if u are able to get into the usb modem drive and locate linux deb file: then just extract all the files and put them in the corresponding folders in your ubuntu file system. i had the same problem. i brought the modem 8 months back. and i had to buy one for my friend in the near past. the old one was detected and the new one had problems. i did the work above and it just went going. other solution is to boot puppy linux and it will definitely detect the drive inside the modem and u copy the deb file and reboot ubuntu and do the above work. i am not a techie. but the modem works fine now.
