Vodafone Mobile Connect 3G in Ubuntu Hardy

For the past few months I have been having to unplug and reinsert my usb 3G stick, an huawei e172 to get it detected properly by vodafone mobile connect card driver for linux 2.0.beta3

I finally came across this comment on launchpad

Basically you just need to disable a certain unnecessary module called airprime

in the terminal type:-

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

then add:-

# remove e220-conflicting airprime
blacklist airprime

that’s it. So simple and yet so pleasing that the 3G stick just works first time now.
