I have installed a fresh copy of ubuntu 12.10 64-bit on samsung laptop (Model np350v5c-s0bae). The only problem I face is how to make the USB modem stick (Egypt Etisalat - ZTE MF190S) working.

This is the output of lsusb:

Bus 003 Device 007: ID 19d2:2000 ZTE WCDMA Technologies MSM MF627/MF628/MF628+/MF636+ HSDPA/HSUPA 

I have tried the stick modem on other machines and it is working properly.

  • Do you get any recommendations for a driver in Software sources > Additional drivers when the stick is plugged in? Feb 21, 2013 at 0:04
  • no , nothing new in Additional Drivers

I run sudo apt-get install udev-discover and restarted the system and it works.

  • this command removed some important programs without even asking .. restart and NOTHING would work
