Good day!

I recently installed 12.04. I am having a hard time connecting to the Internet using my Sun Broadband Wireless. I installed the 64-bit version. I am from the Philippines.

When I plug in my USB stick, it does not show up on the Network Manager/ no new connection can be detected. I try to edit it using Edit Connections but still to no avail.

I have tried doing these steps from kenji08, kartonista, and from review-ninja (for this one, I can't seem to get pass the first step.)

I hope those information can help.

There's a work around for it. You may want to check it out here.

Though the call and text features are not available in the Linux platform. I'm currently using a smart broadband prepaid so what I do is insert the SIM on a phone and register it from there.
