To activate mobile (internet) broadband connection try inserting another data card to activate it first make those settings and once its activated try with the above mentioned settings. In case if the problem still not solved try inserting it and enable the connection option that does the trick. iball 3.75G-72 connect mobile broadband usb modem not detected in ubuntu 12.04. how to detect that modem? "following is a step by step method Create a mobile broadband connection [choose connect automatically] Run the following command: sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x1c9e product=0x9605 Run dmesg to check the configuration of it, I don't know but it shows whether the above command was a success or not? Run lsusb to check the usb devices If its still not working then disable networking and enable it again. If you are getting confused with terminal things as I was, do this sudo lsusb -vvv> /tmp/usb_ info then, go to /tmp/usb_info that document will show you, your usb devices and its information."
