I tried to install the Mobile Partner Linux Edition & the installation did install the NDIS driver. now when the next part comes up of entering the pppconfig , there I’ve set up an AirTel connection and it requires the ISP username and ISP password which I don’t have. so the connection is incomplete. now if I enter lsusb in the terminal, I don’t find anything related to Huawei modem device. All I find is

BUS 001 DEVICE 002: ID 0c45:63f2 Microdia

The Device isn't detected after installing the driver too. please help.

I am also one of the Modem user. Actually Ubuntu have got smooth way to dealt with Modems. you no need to install Mobile Partner to connect with the internet. Follow these steps one by one. Click at your network applet which is at your top panel. enter image description here Select Edit Connections enter image description here In the window choose Mobile Broadband and select Add . enter image description here Then all steps do as I have given there. enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

After creating the steps successfully you will see a connection at Network applet and selecting that connection will connect your PC to Internet.

Leave the username and password blocks are as empty. all you need to do is simply take care of APN of AirTel nothing but

Hope that helps.
