Bug Description

While installing Tata Photon+ Mobile Broadband, the modem was automatically detected by the network manager. After successfully configuring from the network manager, the modem would not connect.
The modem started to work only after manually entering the both usename and password as "internet". This should have been done automatically as many new users would face difficulty in doing it manually.

Tested Tata Indicom (Photon+) and the username and password is still showing as blank. Both username and password should be 'internet' by default.
