you resolve your issue


This week I received from Telstra their Sierra 4G modem for mobile
> broadband which I must use in my location. Those familiar with this
> modem will know that it works on 3G as well and on all bands
> (850/1800/2500 MHz). There is no 4G on the Sunshine Coast, QLD.
> My plan/location uses 3G and 850 MHz and I am currently usine the
> original Maxon BP3-EXT modem.
> When connected via USB the 4G modem detects 3G with adequate signal
> strength and is ready to relay data. However I cannot get 12.04 to
> connect with the modem having tried all the Plan descriptions listed by
> Ubuntu. I have asked Telstra for the APN via email but have not yet had
> a reply. I hope that this will help 12.04 to find the right connecting
> file. Eventually I wish to use the 4G modem with a laptop PC in a true
> mobile anywhere situation as well as at home.
> I would appreciate advice or suggestions from members.
> Thank you.
