Go to the tile "network" then "broadband". And make you choises there.

Wit my huawei, the only settings i change are:

Protocol: 3g

Service: umts


User: gprs

Pass: gprs

For sure you have to replace the settings, with your provider ones.

I havent access to my pineapples, but must be something like that. Also consider to check the wiki:

Maybe the logfile can help.

Out of the Blue, many things can be wrong:
- Forgot to save settings (tried to push redial)

-- settings wrong

- sim card not inserted properly

- no dataplan is activated

- pin is active

- etc.

post your logfile after you dial up, or restart.

did you modem have a LED? did it change color, or from blinking to steady?

I selected

Protocol: 3g

Service: umts

Apn: pinternet.interkom.de

User: fonic

Pass: fonic

this should be the right preferences for the o2 germany fonic internet. But it does not work.

why did you type in fonic (user and pw)?

Dont type there anything... --> for example here
