    Never used one of these, but I believe it should work out of the box. You just need to go into the networkmanager to set it up.

    Cool ubuntu newbie

    This is markieb,Thanks for the replies I still can't figure this out.The icon comes up for the disc with two different modems 3G and vodafone when i try to run it it still says cant find auto run and cant find disc period.Am I even running files right? I've reconnected it edited connections is there any way to programme it to recognize modems or to insert autorun files at source?also is there a command to run software that's already installed?I"m only using this system a couple of days (if you couldn't tell).I'll check back later any advice is appreciated,thanks

    I think you need to be more specific about the problem and exactly what you are doing.

    Did you read the link posted by reed9?

    What do you mean when you say "I try to run it", run what?

    t says error can't find autorun and cant find media/my dischelper. exe.zip period
    Are you trying to run a file named "dischelper.exe"? That is a windows file and will only work on windows.

    What do you mean by "the autorun software is there"? Do you have some type of installation/driver disc that came with the modem?

    What exactly happens when you try to use the Network Manager?
    You will probably get more help if you post more detailed info, there are many Ubuntu users on the forum, myself not included.

    The disk you are trying to run is useless under a linux system. If you can open a terminl and post the output of
    Code:
    lspci | grep -i net
    someone may be able to buy a clue!

    I had the same problem and rebooted the computer with the modem plugged in.
