    No idea, but have you tried blank password?
    also what is the prompt exactly? You sure its not asking for the keyring password which is something entirely different (and by default is the same your ubuntu account password, unless you changed either).

    Question Re: ubuntu 9.10 3 usb dongle trouble

    i have tried blank password,no luck.
    the prompt is exactly that it needs the password for the HUAWEI E122 HSPA STICK to connect to the mobile broadband.
    as it does try and connect at the top of screen but it needs the password to do so,which i dont know
    any ideas?

    thanks

    I suspect it is requesting the password you use to connect with your provider, (the one you type in to see your e-mails) It only needs to be entered once, from then on the USB will remember it and connect you every time you plug in.
    Life is like a box of chocolates that someone else got to first.

    klemes thanks but i tried the pin and that never worked.



    P4man i may have to contact 3 to get these password problem is just have to ask for password cos if i tell them i use linux there just we dont support linux even tho the stick reconises linux straght away.

    David Batty thanks i previously have windows vista on laptop and u did not need a password to connect to the stick then but my harddrive broke and i thought i replace it with ubuntu linux now it asks me for a password,i have three,guest all the ones can find on the net.I have tried my log in passwords for my3 but no luck as of yet.

    thankyou guys for all help
    (i am on my partners computer at the mo on vista thats how on the web now)

    Re: ubuntu 9.10 3 usb dongle trouble

    I think we're missing something obvious here somehow. All of my googling suggests you dont need a password.

    Do this; right click on network manager, edit connection, mobile broadband, add. Follow the wizard. (If you are in the UK, ubuntu calls that Britain in that list, just so you know). At the end, make sure you mark the "available to all users"

    If/when you should get a prompt for a password, kindly make and post a screenshot. Im guessing it will only ask you ubuntu account password, possibly gnome keyring password, but nothing else.
