Sierra wireless AC850 not functioning on nx6325 with Ubuntu 8.04


I have a Sierra 850 Aircard. I tried to get it working under Ubuntu 7.04 on an HP nx6325. My attempts lead me to believe the failure was due to the fact that "pccardctl ident" gave a response (whilst correctly identifying the card): function 2 (serial).

The posts I read all suggest that the response should show: function 6 (network).

Here's the response from "pccardctl ident":
Socket 0:
product info: "Sierra Wireless", "AC850", "3G Network Adapter", "R1"
manfid: 0x0192, 0x0710
function: 2 (serial)

I have updated to Ubuntu 8.04 and the problem seems unchanged.

Incidentally, all the information I've read states that inserting the card should give two high beeps... I have never heard anything upon inserting the card.

The ppp connect seems to fail at the point where I try to connect to the internet. The card is accepted, and everything is fine until the point where the connection is supposed to happen. PIN has been turned off.

Any ideas? I can supply more log data if that will help (didn't want to clutter up the post with stuff nobody wants).

A colleague recently told me that, since a UMTS card is mapped to a serial device, the response "function: 2 (serial)" is actually OK. So the problem must lie elsewhere. Heres the syslog data(incase that helps):

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
