    And I added daily build of the newer network-manager to my repositories, and if anyone wants the extra goodies it gives, I highly recommend it with this modem.
    It gives you the ability to choose the desired network; 3G only, 3G pref., EDGE etc.
    Then it shows the signal strength and the technology used atm.; HSPA, UMTS etc.
    And the main reason I installed it, bluetooth DUN support.

    Thumbs down Re: Huawei E1820 + Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit

    Hello all!

    I seen ti have the same koind of problem as the original poster. Network Manager mostly just tells me 'No GSM-connection. You are offline' or something. I cant replicate the problem right now, because then I will not be able to reconnect easily (I have been fighting with my computers for a few hours now, and this is the first successfull connect...).

    I can connect with network manager but usually several reboots and a constant trying to connect is required. I also do have a Finnish Saunalahti connection, so maybe it is in their end? I did try to read the 'Mobile broadband how-to' but it just was too complicated for a noob like me. Did't really know what commands to execute, and if I just can copy-paste from the guide or not, as that is all I can do with the Linux-skills I have at the moment.

    The worst thing is that the modem and the software does not function at all in Win7, and my XP-computer has a cool (possibly the coolest?) casemod, which unfortunately does require it to be hanging on the wall ,while it is running, and I haven't had the time to put it up in our new home :).

    If anybody has any ideas what to do next, I'd be very happy, because I would need to do some work from home, which requires an internet connection... What you see here is my desperate cry for help :D
