I have Alcatel Speedtouch ADLS USB modem and I have been trying to figure out how to set it up. I finally found a page explaining it simply. But the Network Manager program link doesn't work. I think I saw this program already installed on Ubuntu? (from year 2008)

And I would like to ask how to install .deb files?

(As far I learned I will try to copy them in a folder in my flashdisk and then I will run terminal in Ubuntu and then I will write this code for every file.)

cd /home/ctest/Downloads/
dpkg -i random_name.deb

Yes, you understood how to properly setup packages, but you also need the dependencies of the packages.

In this page you can find packages .deb and dependencies of packages:

Download them and install.
