Re: 3G usb modem(ZTE MF100) didn't work.
Some time ago I set up the MF100's predecessor, an MF60, and I recall that it
wouldn't play well with openSUSE until I made one single simple change in the
networkmanager settings for the connection. Unfortunately it was too long ago
for me to remember what that one change was, so I've posted screen shots of the
working setup in hopes that you find them useful.
We've found the MF60 to be a tremendously helpful item to have on this little
island where the DSL is often down for days at a time. When all we had was 2G
it had trouble holding a connection for more than 45 minutes or so, but now we
have 3G, and we recently used it continuously for a week+ after Hurricane Sandy
without any issues.
