I am recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS in my Acer Aspire 5542 laptop. I am not able to connect to internet using my Micromax MMX 353G USB 3G Modem ( I'm using Vodafone Mobile as ISP with APN "www" for 2G Network). I don't know how to configure my modem to connect to internet. But i can easily do that using Windows 7. Pls kindly help. Is there in GUI application to do it as i m not well versed with the terminal codes.
