Last week I received my belgacom 3G network card and Vodafone k3806 usb stick to connect my laptop to mobile internet. On my son's windows 7 it all works fine. However I am a linux user and my laptop is running (X)Ubuntu 12.04.
When I insert the USB stick it gets recognized as a both a mounted drive and as a mobile internet device. A wizard opens that let me select the APN based on some country database. Under the network manager icon appears the possibility to select a mobile network and to enable mobile networking. The USB stick flashes green, but I do not succeed in making a connection.
When I click on my network indicator it looks like a mobile network with a certain strength is detected. However I cannot connect. Under "edit connections" in the network manager there are a lot more possibilities to enter. I have entered the PIN code there, but still I am not able to connect to the 3 G network.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
