[opensuse] Huawei modem-software/drivers, integrated in kernel-firmware modules?

I have a Huawei E173 3G Modem, which is a Hotplug USB device.
If the device shows up in NM, is it correct to assume that all drivers are installed?
How can i test if the device is trying to connect a service?
The only thing i can see is that it does not get an ip-address, and so not connected.
There is no dialog, or error message that shows what is going, or not going on.
This is at least confusing when one has not ever used the device in a linux environment.

Usually an application shows a connection dialog, to show that it is actually doing something, but here i fail to understand what is happening.
There is a change in the systemtray, the icon changes to another one and there is little progress bar, and then a red 'no parking' sign. Showing there is no connection.
With my Wi-fi, if my connection is alright, a v-mark on green background shows shortly, and the connection is established.
But i want to know *why* there is no connection, and *how* to solve it.

Does anyone know if additional driver-software has to be installed?
And if so, where to get it?
Or, maybe there is a manual available somewhere?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,


Have a nice day,
