Bug Description

Binary package hint: network-manager

I have a ZTE AC800 modem that works fine with Ubuntu 9.04. But it stopped working since Ubuntu 9.10. Currently I have installed Kubuntu 10.04 Beta 1. Even now this modem doesn't work through the network-manager. The error I see in the /var/log/daemon.log file is:

Apr 6 09:53:18 skubuntu modem-manager: (ttyUSB0) opening serial device...
Apr 6 09:53:18 skubuntu modem-manager: Modem /org/freedesktop/ModemManager/Modems/1: state changed (disabled -> enabling)
Apr 6 09:53:18 skubuntu modem-manager: Got failure code 100: Unknown error
Apr 6 09:53:18 skubuntu modem-manager: Your CDMA modem does not support +CMEE command
Apr 6 09:53:18 skubuntu modem-manager: Modem /org/freedesktop/ModemManager/Modems/1: state changed (enabling -> enabled)

But this modem still works with wvdial. The settings in the wvdial.conf for the modem are as follows:

Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
ISDN = 0
Phone = #777
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Username = cdma
Password = cdma
Baud = 460800
Stupid Mode = 1

The way I made it work in Ubuntu/Kubuntu 9.10 was removing the networkmanager of 9.10 and installing the one from 9.04. But thats not the way one would want it to work. Right?

I've tried this in Ubuntu 9.10 with ZTE AC800 and as the title of this bug report says, it is true it doesn't work. But however the details provided by the reporter is invalid and this is a duplicate bug.
