[Bug 1071014] Re: Nokia CS-17 mobile broadband doesn't work anymore


I think BIOS cannot be the root cause, because CS-17 has worked on this
same machine before 12.04.

However, this seems to be a USB modeswitch problem/conflict. I'm now
able to make the device work like this:

1) Set DisableSwitching=1 in /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
2) $ eject /dev/sr1

For some reason ejecting the device makes it recognized and I can
configure Mobile Broadband via the network menu.

In the kernel log there's now:
