Using OpenVPN with UMTS Stick does not work

Hi guys and girls,

I want to use a prepaid UMTS Stick with a simcard in it that is manufactured by Huawei. I use Debian and go to the internet while using OPENVPN. I can use openVPN when going to the internet over ethernet, which is no problem. But when I use the UMTS Stick I start OpenVPN but it still shows my IP when I go to pages like or
Then I use the "ifconfig" command it worked once that it shows the right IP of the VPN. But after a few seconds I could not use the internet anymore because the iceweasel browser did not display anything anymore. Further I have no antivirus or firewall installed only pure debian.

Thank you very much for your help.

Hi guys,

would the modemmanager help me?

My Wheezy version is 7.8 according to "cat /etc/debian_version".

The /etc/network/interfaces says
#The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

Any plan?
