Hi there,

As I'm completely new & surprised by network manager, my option GMT 382E umts card got working instantly, 3g with Proximus in Belgium.
However, I'd like to use these kind of card with ubuntu server install, and would like to know the commands to get this working from the command-line.

Any tips are welcome, seems I can't figure this out...


Hi Lennert,

If you want a minimal install you need something like the script which is available in the HSO driver packages from Option. You can locate the latest script here:,821.0.html



the script got me a working connection. However, is there a possibility to read out the 3g-reception status etc?

Right now I'm trying to keep the connection up with cron. Seems this is not a great way to do it, right?
