Huawei E173 modem stopped working after upgrading on precise

Asked by Martin Holicky on 2012-05-01

Hello, I have a Huawei E173 modem that worked fine on Ubuntu 11.10. But after I upgraded on precise, there is no prompt for PIN and nothing appears in the network menu.

Command lsb_release -a; uname -a; lsusb output:

So is there any way to make the PIN prompt and other things appear again?
Thanks

No I haven't. Do you need some more information?
