works perfectly on ubuntu 12.10 – Silver Moon Feb 26 '13 at 6:44

Without going into any technical details, right click on the network manager icon on the top right of your screen, go to edit connections and then select mobile broadband. My Huawei tata photon usb modem was detected . Chance are your will be detected too and then all you have to do is click next.

your modem should be automatically detected in newer versions (11.10 onwards my experience) you just have to wait for some time for the modem to be initialised then perform above proceedings.

  1. Make sure to enter username=internet and password=internet
  2. "Connect Automatically" is not necessary according to me because it requires a lot of time for modem initialization any attempt to connect to internet before that would compel you to remove and re-insert modem. Be patient

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Alaa Ali Sep 20 '13 at 14:44
...And that link is now dead. There is an archived copy, though it might be somewhat hard to use without the images (which are not archived, and are referred to within the next to help explain what to do). – Eliah Kagan Oct 21 '14 at 6:04
