I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my Thinkpad T400, and in addition to traditional ethernet and wifi connections, I would like to enable the mobile broadband, integrated by default on my laptop. The problemthat the system does not detect it and the Lenovo Support Web site, are shown three types of possible cards, installed in my laptop.

Qualcomm Gobi 1000 HS-USB Modem 9202 Qualcomm Gobi 2000 HS-USB Modem 9205 F3507g Ericsson Mobile Broadband Modem

I would like to know if there are drivers for these devices and possibly how to enable the connection. I look forward to your valuable help. Thanks in advance.

Do you have (or need) a SIM card? – david6 Nov 24 '12 at 0:10
