t-mobile mobile broadband
I apologise if this has been covered before, but am brand new!I have just bought an Elonex webbook running on Ubuntu linux. I have also bought a T-Mobile mobile broadband stick - a huawei e170. When I plug in the stick and click the 'mobile broadband' icon, a mobile broadband box appears with a 'connect' button. Next to that, it says 'unknown' 'scanning' and 'GPRS' with a signal strength indicator showing 2 bars. If i click on the connect button another box appears, says connecting, but nothing happens.I know that I'm in a poor area for mobile broadband, but had the same problem when I took the webbook into town where the 3G signal is (supposed to be) good.Phone calls to Elonex & T-mobile have failed to solve the problem.Can anyone out there help, please? I am a total novice where linux is concerned. If I can't resolve this, I'll have to return the webbook & get a Windows based one but I'd prefer not to.Thanks!
