Can't use on-board broadband modem on HP6730b laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS


Hello,

I've been trying to use the onboard modem on my laptop for Internet connectivity. From what I can gather, Ubuntu hasn't installed a driver for the modem.

When I connect my phone using a usb cable to the laptop, I'm able to connect and browse. However, the network manager doesn't seem to have a driver for the onboard modem because it doesn't recognize it.

I hope I can find a workaround. Please help!!

Then install the modem driver for the specific hardware . Or as a workaround use ndiswrapper to install windows driver here. http://wiki.debian.org/NdisWrapper
