Cinnamon desktop, 64 bit architecture
The device is a usb pen – Huawey E173
lsusb shows: bus 002 Device 011: ID 12d1:1c05 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E173s

Connect automatically: check!
All else blank/unchecked, including APN: (blank)
Authentication: allowed methods: CHAP (and only this one)

Allow deflate data compression: check!
