First of all I m a newbie to ubuntu and recently installed 16.10. Then when i tried to connect to the internet my usb dongle doesn't show up.
I tried everything, googled many times. I tried adding a new connection in the regular way by going to wifi sign in top right corner and etc etc... But nothing worked.
In my dongle there is a folder named Linux and there are few files like install , 7zr , Mobile partner.dat and also a readme.txt. I ve done every step of the instructions there is in the readme.
It says login as root (sudo) and type tar (some 4 letters) Linux_install.tar.bz2.
When i execute this code terminal shows there is no files or events(something similar to that.).
Then I looked to see if my device is recognized by the OS using lsusb And it shows that USB Modem Huawei Technology.inc is recognized as a mass storage device.
My Dongle: Huawei Mobile Broadband E303
