Default wireless mobile broadband connection

Can any one help-

I am testing out Kubuntu 10.10mm and trying to establish a mobile
wireless broadband connection thru a usb modem stick
that runs at 7.2mbs, but when I click on Network Management settings
the wireless tab is greyed out so cant complete, even
when I pug in the wireless modem stick?

Mobile wireless broadband is not the same as wireless (although
technically it is of course wireless). Wireless is used for WLAN
connections but you are looking for the "Mobile Broadband" tab which
shouldn't be greyed out if your adapter is found by the system.

My experience with 'network-manager' ... which is becoming the standard
program for all sorts of internet connections, is that it does a
complete scan of the interfaces at start-up. It might be worthwhile to
test whether installing the usb-dongle at startup allows the modem to
be connected. You see the modem MAY also be detected as a mass-storage
device. For whatever reason, greyed-out on the screen means that the
modem was not detected.

Try this:

install the usb-dongle.
reboot.

now look over the content of your dmesg (in /var/log/) ... it should
have a line showing that ONE of the usb ports is connected to a modem
and it should give the chipset/brand of the dongle.


Report back to the group on your progress.

Good luck


Richard

Richard,

I done that and now recognises the usb modem stick , as mobile
broadband tab now shows,
I clicked onto it and it was blank and I presume that I click add and
enter details either
about gsm or hspd(ithinkg) as in win xp pro sp3 dual boot at moment. I
am not sure what details
I put in, so when in k10.10mm I will do a screen copy of this window
and sen to you OK

Ray, you need some information that a windows user normally does not
need. You need as a m inimum:

the number to dial (on GSM often (*99# or similar)
the apn (something like "yourprovider.net)

you fill these in via the "edit" button from "manage your connections"
once you have created a connection
