Whenever I plugged in the modem to 12.10, I get an error message: (system problem).

When I look for the modem in the computer - there was an unknown device (that is the modem). So I need a driver for that modem. I am not able to connect Internet, but in 11.10 there was no problem.

How can I fix this?

I found a working solution.

open terminal then type 'sudo su' (without inverted comma) enter the password then type echo 1C9E 9605 > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id

wait for a minute (do not close the terminal while waiting) and u should now see your default network

If I am not wrong, the Micromax modem is a dialup Modem and you will need to install a driver.

I think this Ubuntu community page will answer your questions -
