  1. Check the USB Modem to see if there is any memory card already inserted

    Remove any onboard memory card

  2. Connect the modem and wait for network manager to detect the modem (time can range from a second to 5 minutes top)

  3. Once network manager detects the device as a modem as a mobile broadband device, click on the NETWORK indicator and choose the your device as detected and you should see network ICON rotating( indicating that the system is trying to make a connection)

  4. A CONNECTION ESTABLISHED notification will spring up if the connection is successful

  5. IF network manager fails to recognize the device as a mobile broadband device, remove the device and click on the network indicator, select EDIT CONNECTIONS

  6. A NETWORK CONNECTIONS dialog box will show up. Click on MOBILE BROADBAND and choose ADD.

    Choose continue and also choose the country from which you are making the connection( INDIA in your case) and select the provider from the list of providers (RELIANCE NET CONNECT) and click continue.

  7. Finally choose apply and connect the USB Modem and wait for about 5 minutes to allow network manager to recognize the device as a mobile broadband device. Once recognized, click on the device name under the network indicator to activate the connection
