Hi Complete Newbie (2 days old)here and can't connect to the internet through my wireless USB Modem. I started on the Newbie topic but the help went cold.

I have Ubuntu 8.10 desktop i386, dual booting with vista on a
HP Pavilion dv9700 Notebook PC.
Wireless Broadband 7.2 USB Mobile Card(ZTE MF636BP)Model:MF636, that runs on the Bigpond(Australia) Next G Network.

I have found a few instructions for modems similar to mine but have seen nothing for this particular model and model info seems very important. It will take me along time to figure out the most simple instructions so I want to make sure I have the right ones or a least a modem specific attempt.

The best I have found so far is
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1005617
and that is with Kabuntu and an older(I think) modem.

Here are some outputs that I dont understand.
