Hauwei E122

  10 years ago
  Huawei (GSM/3G/HSPA)
  Mint (older version)
  Isn't detected or recognized
What doesn't work:

No luck, doesn't work at all - is listed in terminal, but just won't be recognised to connect.

What was done to make it work:

I tried Ubuntu lucid and had some luck on one machine where it was recognised. Don't know why the other two machines I tried with Lucid it didn't work though.

Additional notes:

This is really bad for linux as the E122 is a common 3G modem these days.

And the fact that in the latest version it still has problems, is very poor on the hardware front.
