This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Have you tried help.ubuntu.com/community/Iburst ? Update the question if that didn't work, or if you have problems following the instructions there. –  user68186 Jan 14 '13 at 14:31

If I remember correctly, you don't need a driver, it's already baked into the kernel. Right-click on the network manager applet first (screenshot 1), and select Edit Connections. Choose the Add button on the DSL tab (screenshot 2). Then insert a name of the connection and tick the 'Connect automatically' box (screenshot 3). Then you need to fill in the details you will have received from iBurst when you set up your account.

PS - I did this at my brother's house in Joburg a few years ago so my memory is a bit flaky :-)

iBurst USB Modem Installation

Download ''Source code for iBurst driver in DKMS format'' (make sure the add-on is ticked) from the Ubuntu Software Center on your Ubuntu desktop with a WI-FI connection to the Internet. After it has installed plug your USB modem in and open the Terminal application and type ''pppoeconf'' (no inverted commas), then follow the steps and it should work. You can also download ''eyeburst'' from the Ubuntu Software Center to see your signal status but it is not necessary.
