Ubuntu: How do I connect with my Verizon Mobile Broadband dongle?



Question:

When I try and set up my mobile connection through the connection wizard it doesn't work at all. There is no indication that my computer even recognizes it. Any pointers? This is a Verizon dongle.


Solution:1

You may need to install the usb-modeswitch package, if your Verizon device is a "flip-flop" device.

A "flip-flop" device is one that initially appears as a CD-ROM device that contains Windows drivers for the device. This driver, when installed, sends a special command to the device to let it know that it can "flip" into modem mode.

Usually these devices have no Linux drivers on them. The usb-modeswitch program sends the special command unconditionally, and lets Linux's built-in facilities talk to the modem.
