Network setting in Ubuntu 9.04 is not easy

Install Ubuntu 9.04 on Acer Aspire 4520 notebook is so easy and the Gnome X window so beautiful.
But the problem is setting up network like wireless and Mobile using Samsung SGH-L700 as 3Gmodem never success.
Wireless using Atheros (ath5k) sometimes work, but on the other time that configuration will be disappear. I must resetting the wireless. Huh .. so tired.
Samsung SGH-L700 as modem is never connect, the phone will be restart Immediately and then no response from the phone. Using wvdial not help too.
Only one connection is success that is ethernet. But I don't like using this connection now.
I guess this distro is not fully compatible for Aspire 4520.

Internet Access with Samsung SGH-L700 on Opensuse 11.1

The key to install access internet with kinternet (Opensuse 11.1 KDE) using Samsung SGH-L700 is using 'Tradiotional method with ifup' on Network Setting then using 'User Controlled with NetworkManager'. I will post more detail about my setting on next post.

This an example for 'Data rate' on my internet connection with Samsung SGH-L700 (3G phone).
