i'm very new to Linux, just installed 2 days ago. I have 2 USB modems. I managed to get the Telstra PrePaid one set up surprisingly easy using Ubuntu default network manager(?). I am not finding it so easy with my ZTE MF652 USB modem. This is the main one I wish to use as it is post paid and I don't have to worry about monitoring data usage, which I have not yet discovered how.
The windows ZTE connection manager on install/1st use only requires the service provider code, don't need a username or password. I have tried getting all the info I can out of the settings, which only contained Configuration name (same as SP code) and the APN, an extension of the SP code. The ISP is ONESeniors that uses (I believe) ONEMobile as it's carrier name.
So in the network manager I have selected ONEMobile (also tried ONESeniors) as my carrier, used the APN that I got from windows and left the dail number as the default *99# (which worked for Telstra).
I don't now what else to try or how to get anymore info on the settings. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
