Btw, NM crowd, any practical/theoretical ideas how to solve this

your distro may ship usb_modeswitch or modem-modeswitch.  Either of
those (or both) are generally the best way to fix this problem.
Sometimes it's also done in the kernel drivers for the device.



I am a newbie at setting wireless broadband therefore my notes are by a
newbie and I compare to Windows settings.
In Windows I plug the card and after making a little modification on
settings due to wrong out-of-the-box settings (settings of modem) on my
new Huawei 1692 dong, I was online, and I still see the mass storage
In Fedora, I had to dig the net to find that I have to install and use
usb_modeswitch, I don't have the broadband connection listed in
nm-applet, I have to use automatic connection to use it...and in any
case I do not have mass storage available.

Well, Fedora should probably be shipping usb_modeswitch or something
similar.  Second, it may be that your card's IDs aren't yet known to the
drivers.  Can you do "lsusb -vv" from a terminal for me when the card is
plugged in and the driver-cd-thing has disappeared?


how can I divert the output to a file, as it is too long for a copy/paste from a terminal???
