By mobile broadband, do you mean wireless?

What kind of wireless chip. (If you're not sure, check the hardware in Windows-->Control Panel-->System or in Ubuntu or run lspci in a terminal.

Mobile broadband, if stated correctly,is going to be something offered by a wireless provider via a usb, pcmia or similar card/dongle.

Assuming that this is a USB dongle that you put in, you can post the output of lsusb after you have inserted the dongle. I could not find my dongle, so this is what happens with a flash drive. I executed the command before and after insert and in red marked the difference.

Code:
wim@aa0:~$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 064e:d101 Suyin Corp. Acer CrystalEye Webcam
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
wim@aa0:~$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 090c:1000 Feiya Technology Corp. Flash Drive
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 064e:d101 Suyin Corp. Acer CrystalEye Webcam
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Also, after inserting, post the last 30 lines of the output of the dmesg command

Code:
wim@aa0:~$ dmesg |tail -n 30

Yours will (obviously) show different results.
