HP hs2340 HSPA+ Mobile Broadband Modem does not work
Description: Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS
I have installed Ubuntu 10.04.2 on HP Probook 6560b. The internal Mobile Broadband Modem is HP hs2340, which is correctly identified.
In neither the LTS release or the live CD of Oneiric Ocelot Alpha 3 release does Mobile Broadband work 'out of the box'
After fiddling around, I finally got the modem working. The missing bit was to do a hard shutdown from Windows, leaving the modem to an enabled state. After that, the connection worked instantly.
- network-manager should really provide more information to what it is doing. In all previous attempts, network-manager would be doing something for a while with no result or error message
- rfkill always listed the hp-wwan as 'not blocked'
