    Default Setup problems Huawei E1752 (from 2Gb deal) ubuntu 10.04

    It was for the 2Gb deal. The model number on the dongle was E1752 and the USB ID (from when I ran lsusb in Terminal) was 12d1:1446

    The problem seems to be the computer not recognising the USB device in the right way. I solved the problem by installing usb-modeswitch and then changing a value in the configuration file.
