Insert the USB modem and type "lsusb" (without quotes) in a terminal and copy the output here. If you can identify the line that identifies the usb modem then just copy that line, if not, show us the whole output. I'm not finding the info by googling "micromax mmx350".

i am trying to use load balancing and link aggregation to speed up my network(i have lived in "fringe" area for 22 years and have had enough with getting the run around), i will be getting satallite internet soon to more than double the available bandwidth but i'd like to increasde the reliablity and speed by using uo to 2 more of my cellular connections and one of my neighbors (if she is up for it) but my 3G modem does not seem to be working well with 12.04 lts(not showing up as a network adapter in this version), any ideas at all would be greatly apreciated


FYI: i will be getting houghes net through dish network with a neighbor observed speed of 6.3Mbps, ad a ping around 1400ms, my single cellular 3G line normally pulls about 1.8Mbps, but has reached 3.9Mbps on good days(verry rare) and it also has a ping of around 130ms, thats good enough for gaminbg and for checking m security cameras, if i agrigate these 2-4 links i could be seeing muchj more bang for my buck and an almost 0 down time, important for tryin to run multiple business out of my home($40/moth for satallite[not mine] and $35/moth for each cellular link[at the moment only one is active])
