Dongle not working

Posted 09-01-2012 at 02:39 PM by davetesc

Just updated to mint13KDE and as with all previous updates since mint 10 huawei e160 dongle won't work. This is across the board on all distros I've tried in last couple of years. Tried allsorts of fixes but have now found sakis3g script, this works as long as I boot without dongle plugged in.
