I have a HP Probook 4520s, with Ubuntu 12.04, I am unable to get the Mobile Broadband connection working. After I create the connection there is no option to connect to it.

I am fairly new with Ubuntu and would like to disconnect from Windows permanently. I've gone through a massive amount of troubleshooting threads, and decided to rather ask for assistance in this. I think I might have narrowed it to were the gobi files needs to be copied or this link might help? http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-3-stable/v3.6/compat-wireless-3.6.6-1-snpc.tar.bz2

To be honest, I might have broken a couple of times, where I had to reload twice now. And would rather not do this again. If any-one can either Assist me, or even just point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

Below is the information that seems to be requested in most threads
