New to linux and having a few problems despite a very good tutorial here for u.

I am only seeing the usb drive with 3connect software in it - this 3connect usb drive that I can see has the windows installers and autorun files in and also has a folder called LINUXFILES which does have and .rpm package in.

I received the ZTE MF627 today from 3 UK, the customer service people and technical support all told me it worked on Linux but I was a little sceptical.

Amazingly I plugged it in and it does have Linux drivers on the USB drive - and they work in Ubuntu!

There's no instructions however, and I am certainly no Ubuntu expert but I managed to get it working in about 30 seconds. As I said though, I am no expert so you may want to get confirmation from someone else before following what I did but it is up to you.

I copied the Linux files across to my Desktop, then opened a terminal and navigated to the folder on the desktop:

cd Desktop

cd LinuxUI

One inside the folder I noticed a file named install.sh so I did something that I remembered from another Linux installation years ago, I am not sure if this is how you are meant to do it on Ubuntu.

sudo sh install.sh

That installed the drivers and the little 3 UK program under Applications>Internet>3UK.

I plugged it in ran the program and it works perfectly. I don't think you can use it as USB storage though.

have a gr8 day ahead.

You may need to upgrade to a newer sim card. There have been changes recently, esp. with the broader adoption of, and newer versions of LTE. LTE is a whole different radio system than 3g or even 4g. (It is actually 3g on super steroids) I think a sim upgrade should fix the problem.
