HOWTo: Getting Zain E1550 to work on Ubuntu 10.04

The HUAWEI E1550 does not work on most boxes running Ubuntu 10.04. But thanks to Deo Shayo of UDOM, I can now make use of the modems on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

  • Update your source list

    $ sudo apt-get update
  • Install the usb-modeswitch

    $ sudo apt-get install usb-modeswitch
  • Run the usb-modeswitch
    sudo usb-modeswitch
  • Setup the Mobile Broadband, normally and now should see the Zain listed under Tanzania
