I used to use mobile to connect via usb. Recently I have upgraded to ubuntu 11.04. Now I can not enable the mobile broadband. When ever I am enabling by checking the mobile it automatically getting disabled. It was working fine with the other version like 10.04 and 10.10. Can any one tell me how to enable mobile broadband. Thanking you A.Paul.

need lots more information - see this question for the type of detail you should add to your question.… – fossfreedom Jul 3 '11 at 11:16
You do it the same way as you've done it before. If you can't do that, then something is wrong. Since you don't provide any information about your device or anything else, it's impossible to guess what may have gone wrong. – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Jul 3 '11 at 16:12
