it is not auto detected by the system and i could not find any drivers or understandable instructions in the internet for it. I'm new to Linux.
This modem works fine with windows operating system.
Yes, you are correct. Even if the modem isn't detected by Ubuntu its easily detected by Windows. But don't worry, this matter can be solved easily.
I have written down the steps in my blog, and you can follow them. Its really simple and straight forward. Don't worry, any one can get the modem up and running at no time.
