i've been running linuxmint on several computers for well over a year now, and very happily so, with no problems i haven't been able to solve. now, on a new linuxmint10 install, however, my mobile internet connection isn't working.
the mobile internet "modem" works, and i'm able to install and use it with no hazzle on other linuxmint installs. on this install, however, when i right-click on the network symbol, i only get these two options:
- enable networking
- enable wireless
and not the usual third option, "enable mobile broadband" that i'm used to, and able to get to work on other computers.
what may i be doing wrong here, and how can i get this to work. i've tried searching the forum, but have found no solutions. ideas, anyone?
ps: to state the obvious, i've installed the mobile broadband connection under "edit connections", with presumably no problems whatsovever
