Open up a terminal from Applications -> Accessories. Type:

gksu gedit /etc/modules

At the bottom of the file, make two new lines, like this:


Then close the editor program and save it. Reboot the computer and hopefully you’ll be right from now on!

Thanks, this worked for me for ClubTelco/Dodo USB Modem (Alcatel 'OneTouch X220L'):

Vendor=1bbb ProdID=0017 Rev=00.00
1bbb:0017 T & A Mobile Phones

I also needed to clear some of my other attempts using:

sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome
