To my surprise, the PCMCIA card is treated by the Linux kernel as a USB device (huh).
Neccessary kernel module is "usbserial"
and additionaly "option" wich seem to work with huawei K3715 (e180v) also. (http://www.option.com/
To see if they are loaded use
(sudo (if in non-root-mode)) lsmod | grep usbserial
lsmod | grep option
at a console/xterm.
If the output stays empty you have to load them by
(sudo) modprobe usbserial
Further you need the programs "nm-applet"+"nm-connection-editor" or "pupdial" for example.
These programs normaly need "wvdial".
They can be installed by "(sudo) apt-get install wvdial" and "wget wvdial".
The APN has to be googled. INIT-script for wvdial/pupdial or nm-connection-editor are found here also on LQ.
