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"

Hum... I have been trying with the most recent 11.3 as well. Perhaps I
should remove the PIN code. It is the factory default, which is 0000. I
will try that. It would be great if I could at least see that something
is being tried and is failing. As always, lack of meaningful messages
bites one the the nether regions.

BTW, does this device work with the vodafone Linux drivers mentioned
earlier in this thread? I thought vodafone used a different device.
Maybe I got that wrong.
