i'm a noob to Linux. Just installed Lucid Lynx a couple of days ago (through my flash drive) because i always wanted to use Linux in default. It was a clean install.
Now the next stop for me was to configure my internet. Its a usb modem (Netconnect Huwaei EC150) and my ISP is Reliance. Although there was no installation package or anything supplied with the modem for Linux, i still googled my way through (and found a lot of people who had the same problem of connecting their Netconnect modems with Ubuntu and its derivatives) and installed:
in the same order and the modem started working after several 'Detect modem' and finding the suitable port for the ppp to dial the modem.
now i was happy but my Lucd used to freeze a lot too. So I Googled and a lot of people suggested that their issues were resolved after they updated the kernel. So did i but that's where it got jammed.
When i restarted it, there were 2 Linux kernel: .31 and .34 in the boot menu (i guess thats what GRUB is but anyway) Now the .34 is running smooth but whenever i try to connect to the internet, it cannot detect the ttyUSB_utps_modem port through which it is supposed to dial but if i boot up with the Kernel version .31, its freezing but its connecting to the internet.
Please tell me how to fix it.
