I have been using Huawei USB modem to connect to internet in Ubuntu 12.04 and earlier without any problem but it continuously disconnects in Ubuntu 13.04. Sometimes the network is shown connected but without any internet connection. I have to restart my PC or remove the mobile broadband connection in connection manager and make a new one to be able to connect to the network. Moreover, sometimes after this problem the network manager applet just crashes. Network manager also gives some odd names to my mobile broadband connection, e.g. Label Empty, Yes, noname and and sometimes it doesn't show any name but just empty space. This is a fresh install and I've also re-installed but the problem persists.
I am using Ubuntu 13.04 (32-bit) on Acer Aspire One AOD255.
