Huawei Mobile Broadband, Ubuntu 10.04, Celcom service, and HP Mini netbook


Huawei Mobile Broadband, which I bought about 2 years ago, is failed to run properly on my HP Mini 1000 series with Ubuntu 10.04. It will keep trying to connect to internet, yet failed. And I also found a “MOBILE_CONNECT” icon on the desktop. If I tried to click it, it will immediately missing.

So, to solve this problem,

  1. I right-click the NetworkManager Applet,
  2. Edit Connections…
  3. Goto Mobile Broadband tab
  4. Click Add button
  5. Then it will show the Huawei broadband device
  6. Continue the steps for my service provider, which is Celcom
  7. Can connect to internet properly.

I do this whenever I cannot connect to internet properly using the Huawei Mobile Broadband.
