Install reliance broadband+ in ubuntu

In Ubuntu 10.04 , broadband+ device is detected as usb storage.To make it detected as modem we will use usb-modeswitch package. It is a Switching tool for controlling "flip flop" USB devices.

Need to Install follwoing tools.

A. usb-modswitch
B. usb-modswitch-data

Commands to install:-

1. sudo apt-get install -yq usb-modeswitch usb-modeswitch-data

2. wget -c

3. dpkg -i  usb-modeswitch-data_20100127-1_all.deb

For 64 bit :

4. wget  -c

5. dpkg -i usb-modeswitch_1.1.0-2_amd64.deb

For 32 bit

4. wget -c

5. dpkg -i usb-modeswitch_1.1.0-2_i386.deb

Once you install both packages,  you should have the modem detected and then use networkmanager to configure it.
