Kubuntu 10.04 and the T-Mobile Broadband 615 USB Device

The T-Mobile 615 USB broadband stick is not recognised on insertion by Kubuntu/Ubuntu 10.04/10.10. These instructions enable you to use the device.

Once the device is inserted do a lsusb. The result should look like:

Bus 001 Device 006: ID 12d1:1c0b Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
Install usb-modeswitch if not installed  installed by doing:

sudo apt-get install usb-modeswitch

create a new entry  12d1:1c0b in the /etc/usb_modeswitch.d directory by doing sudo vi /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/12d1:1c0b. The contents of the file should be:

########################################################

save the file and do a sudo usb-modeswitch -c /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/12d1:1c0b and then sudo modprobe usbserial vendor 0x2d1 product 0x1c05

Your device should now be working and visible in network manager
