Getting USB mobile dongle to work with Kubuntu 9.10
My friend wanted to give Linux a try and I have today installed Kubuntu 9.10 on her PC.
She has a mobile broadband dongle, a Huawei E0682, which I have been trying to configure so that it can work with Linux.
When the dongle is plugged into the USB socket on the computer, nothing seems to happen and when you go into the Network Connection settings window the "Mobile Broadband" tab is greyed out and therefore I'm not sure how to go about detecting/setting up the dongle to work.
I would be grateful for any advice/instructions on how to get this working.
