Internet Connection Setup in Ubuntu (Wired) Before I go into this detailed technical babble, I want to go over a basic check list for connectivity to the Internet.

I believe the problem you're having is because the Huawei K3765 uses USB "mode-switching" to tell the dongle to stop being a CD drive (where the windows drivers are) and to just be a 3G modem. If I'm right, just install the usb modeswitching program and it should work automatically: sudo apt-get install usb-modeswitch Now unplug the modem and plug it ...

About 1 : I am also on Dell Inspiron and using 11.04 with the same wireless adapter. I didn't need to install anything to get the wireless connection going.
