I need to say something positive here: There have been two kernel updates in Karmic since release as far as I noticed.
Already the first kernel update solved my remaining mobile internet issues. I completely agree that especially a bug in Internet connection is an extremely serious one, but: In Ubuntu mobile internet still works better than everywhere else (except Linux Mint which is Ubuntu based where it also worked very fine the last time I tried - version 8 not tested yet). Last week I compared to Fedora 12 and although it worked in general, I had issues when trying to reconnect or had to plug in twice - don't remember. Before coming to Ubuntu I was on Fedora and a main reason to switch was the mobile internet not working on Fedora 11.

So I find Ubuntu one of the best distributions out there and I would
like to thank all who helped out here very much. I never ever have been
so near to development and able to contribute with testing and hints.

That there are still issues with some models of Huawei is really sad,
but I am sure that providing detailed informations and logfiles will
help out a lot - and probably there should be a new issue opened for the
remaining problems because for a large number of people the updates
provided so far did help.
