i plan to purchase a Huawei E162e usb modem in Ghana when 11.04 is released. My question does it work out of box like in windows or do i need to go the ubuntu way! (tweak). Thanks in advance


I can't say for your model and/or place, but I have tested these Modems 3G Huawei which are listed in the Telcel Mexican Broadband ISP and everyone is working right out of the box. There is simply a procedure that should be done in order to use it as modem, because of the dongle installs initially as a CD-ROM Drive, which shifts to Modem mode when ejecting.

Former link: http://www.bat.telcel.com/equipos_tarjetas.html

A screenshot of the modems is placed here for your convenience.

Good luck!

  • The link 404's. Is there an updated link, or is it unimportant?
