My dmesg, some extra at the head and tail:

The lines starting with "PPP" means that my device E367 can connect to the operator's network via USB-2.0 in Thinkpad X60. The device get an ip, so after running ifconfig we get:

ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol  
          inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:
          RX packets:11 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:12 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:3 
          RX bytes:158 (158.0 B)  TX bytes:269 (269.0 B)

The packet loss is however 100% when I try to ping, for instance ping

I am not sure where the problem is. I know that the thing is

  1. NOT reboot problem, since I have rebooted my system now 18 times with different configs.
  2. should NOT be in the hardware, since I can replicate it with two Thinkpad Lenovo X60s with clean Ubuntu 11.10s; however worked for some reason in 11.10 beta.
  3. NOT a softblock or hardblock problem, since I can see it with rfkill list.
  4. NOT a blacklist problem, since I have nothing in my personal blacklists and the default blacklists are not changed.
  5. My Dongle E367 works, since I verified it in the operator's shop with XP and Windows 7

Pieces of information about the connection that does not get internet although it should:enter image description here

You only have 40 reputation, how can you give a 100 bounty? – Greg Treleaven Oct 26 '11 at 19:48
@GregTreleaven Once you give a bounty the reputation is deducted immediately. – Marco Ceppi Oct 27 '11 at 2:09
I ordered the CD 10.04 and the CD base to X60 to test whether the problem occurs in 10.04. I get also X60s on 11.11. so I have more computers to debug the problem. It takes me now at least the given about two weeks to have sufficient infrastructures with me to push the case forward. – Masi Oct 27 '11 at 19:43

To Solve your problem, I have two options, both are working the same. Whichever you like install it. It's easy to configure and use.

You can find the details as bellow.

1 ]

GNOME PPP is an easy to use graphical dialup connection configuring and dialing tool with system tray icon support.

It uses GNOME/GTK+ for its graphical interface and integrates well in GNOME desktop environment, but it can be used in other environments.

It also uses WvDial dialer as its backend, providing simple configuration via config files. You can also use plain wvdial if you don't have X running.


KPPP is a modem dialer for connecting to a dial-up Internet Service Provider. It displays statistics and accounting information to help users keep track of connection costs.

This package is part of the KDE 4 networking module.

You can find both Apppication on Ubuntu Software Center. both have Graphical Environment. So, you can easily configure and dial-up.

Gnome ppp asks username. What is it for mobile broadband? I do not seem to have any username with my broadband, only phonenumber and password. – Masi Oct 31 '11 at 19:57
your phone number is u r username – Deepak Rajput Nov 1 '11 at 3:03
I get the following log after an unsuccessful attempt: [code]--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.61 --> Cannot set information for serial port. --> Initializing modem. --> Sending: ATZ OK --> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0 ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0 ERROR --> Bad init string. --> Cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0: No such file or directory --> Cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0: No such file or directory[/code] – Masi Nov 1 '11 at 20:49
I wonder whether the given approach really is the source of the problem, since I can get to the network but only the internet does not work. There must be something internal, probably in drivers where the problem is. I told me that the given problem is very probably an unsolved bug in Ubuntu. – Masi Nov 1 '11 at 20:52

I know the link. The given problem is not the problem here. – Masi Oct 26 '11 at 20:27
you can download Ubuntu software center – Deepak Rajput Oct 31 '11 at 11:31
@DeepakRajput What do you mean? I do not get your point about Ubuntu software center, since it is default in 11.10. – Masi Nov 1 '11 at 20:50

I got one tip from ubuntu-fi-freenode-irc that umount the internal memory of the dongle by sudo umount /dev/sr1, but I get umount: /dev/sr1: not found. Ubuntu recognizes the device as CDROM.

How can you umount the given memory that is recognized as CDROM?

I am not sure how the given thing should solve the problem, but let's at least try.
