 make your 3G usb modem work


Most 3G USB Modems with a Micro SD slot will not work on Mint. 
Why?
Linux is confused whether the USB dongle is a flashdisk/modem/CD-ROM

Here's the solution: 
Go to the Terminal and enter this code:

sudo apt-get install usb-modeswitch

this will install both the usb-modeswitch and the usb-modeswitch-data.  Alternatively, you can just go the Software Manager and install usb-modeswitch.  

Credit goes to Liam Green Hughes of www.greenhughes.com who made the usb-modeswitch

If you are using Huawei 3G modem then you can install HUAWEI Data Cards Linux Driver . You can get it from http://consumer.huawei.com/en/support/downloads/detail/index.htm?id=13971
