I recently installed Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 64-bit along with Windows 7. I have a MTS Mblaze 3G USB dongle. This dongle has 2 modes i.e., 1X mode which gives less speed up—to 30 kbp/s and a broadband mode which gives more speed—up to or greater than 500 kbp/s.
In Win 7, this dongle works fine in broadband mode.
For using the 3g USB dongle I followed steps from this page: http://telecomtalk.info/step-by-step-guide-configuring-usb-modem-ubuntu/101849/
It's good that Mint has inbuilt support for MTS dongles. But I am facing a problem as I cannot use my dongle in broadband mode in Mint. I have to start Windows, change the dongle mode to 1X mode and then start Mint. Then it connects to internet with 1X mode only giving less speed.
How can I connect the dongle in Broadband mode in Mint?
I also tried using
wvdial but it gives an error as
/dev/modem not found.
