I have been trying to get mobile broadband working on my laptop. I tried
openSUSE11.2, and now 11.3. I have a certain amount of success. But no
final joy. I suspect it is my lack of knowledge that is the problem
here.

I am trying to use a Swedish service called "Comviq Surf" that provides
a USB modem. It is a per-day/week/month service, similar to what you get
in hotels for wireless. The modem is (from lsusb):

idVendor 0x12d1 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
idProduct 0x1001 E620 USB Modem
bcdDevice 0.00
iManufacturer 2 HUAWEI Technology
iProduct 1 HUAWEI Mobile

I also own that device,labeled as Vodafone K3715. No chance to get it working
with (K)Networkmanger 0.7 of 11.2 ( see
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=567888) . I could dial in with
umtsmon , but umtsmon did setup DNS right only after changing
NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY in /etc/sysconfig/network/config from "auto" to "*ppp*
NetworkManager". I also removed the PIN code from that device.

With 11.3RC it now works basically with (K)Networkmanager, but there are
still some edges. For example sometimes after a resume (K)Networkmanger just
says "networkmanagement disabled"
