I'm using ubuntu 13.04.

Earlier i used Huawei 2g internet dongle which worked fine.

Recently I got TATA PHOTON 3g dongle which in ZTE MF190 model, it gets recognized and appears in my network panel on the top right corner but does not get connect.

I already tried configuration through mobile broadband methoed.

I'm unable to install wvdial offline.

I appreciate any Resolution or Suggestion towards the same!!!

Since you changed dongle, you in fact added a second nic (network interface controller). The logical name of your first nic wil probably have been wlan0, the second nic will then have been named wlan1, the third nic wlan2 and so on. Connect the dongle you wish to use, open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+t) and run the following command: sudo lshw -c network. In the output check the logical name under the header Wireless interface. Now in your networkmanager change the logical name of the interface accordingly.

let me first thank you for your time and effort to answer this.After running the advised command i find below result: *-network description: Wireless interface product: AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) vendor: Atheros Communications Inc. physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:02:00.0 logical name: wlan0 version: 01 serial: 20:7c:8f:63:30:cb width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list ethernet physical wireless. Which is the only wlan. –  Rony Aug 22 '13 at 16:11

Downloaded Sakis3g from http://sourceforge.net/projects/vim-n4n0/files/sakis3g.tar.gz/download and executed the script on the terminal.Followed the connection steps guided by the script and able to connect internet now through ZTE MF190 USB modem distributed by TATA PHOTON 3G - Thanks
