Hi I have been trying Ubuntu to detect and connect using the buit in mobile broadband capability in my HP 110 netbook but until now nothing seems to work

Output of lspci command:

00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801 Mobile PCI Bridge (rev e2)

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR8132 Fast Ethernet (rev c0)

Output of lsusb command:

So far I have been trying what is intended on several pages, trying to update firmware using wine and then moving .mda or whatever files the update package GobiInstaller.mdi throws out. The results are always the same: After running

And creates 2 empty folders, I have been trying hard and I am not sure if I am doing it the way it should be.

Please run sudo lspci so that we can see which card is built in. –  LiveWireBT May 20 '12 at 16:45

Hi thanks, above last lines after running sudo lspci –  Anega May 20 '12 at 19:38
    
I'm sorry, while those cards are mostly connected via PCI, you have to execute sudo lsusb. I just checked back on my notebook. Could you please do that? –  LiveWireBT May 20 '12 at 20:06

1 Answer 1

The instructions in the following guide should work for this card: Guide: How to make Gobi 2000 Wirless modem work under Ubuntu 12.04

That's good news. Please mark your question as answered. –  LiveWireBT May 22 '12 at 8:40
    
The question isn't answered. Got the same "err:msi:ITERATE_Actions Execution halted, action L"_693CD41C_A4A2_4FA1_8888_FC56C9E6E13B" returned 1603" while following the guide. –  yanychar Sep 13 '12 at 16:51
    
Looks like an issue with wine, I replaced the link for the guide with another one, that suggest getting the files from a Windows System. I also tried the PPA version of wine, but still the same issue. –  LiveWireBT Sep 13 '12 at 23:07
