Can anyone please help.

    hi,

    plug the usb key in and from a terminal enter the following

    Code:
    ls usb
    post the output of the code, specifically can you need to identify your new usb dongle in the output.

    Hi,

    12d1:14b5 obviously is the "storage-mode" of the stick. Install "usb-modeswitch" via software-center to flip-flop to modem-mode.

    Try this one via copy/paste:

    Code:
    sudo usb_modeswitch -v 12d1 -p 14b5 -M '55534243123456780000000000000011062000000100000000000000000000'
