Default 3G Modem, how to make mobile broadband?
Hi all

What is the current status for 3G modem support? Can I get it to work in PC-BSD?

I have read the handbook, checked forum and I see a lot of talk about PPP but I don't understand if that is related to this...

I have a Huawei E122.
Country Sweden, Provider: 3, Plan: Bredband Kontantkort
Number: *99#, APN: net​.tre​.se

I just checked the PC-BSD Network manager and it has a 3G / PPP tab that I don’t understand. (when I tested I think there was three devises added and the only thing that worked was to send the 3G PIN)

In Windows there is a software installed from the modem, In Linux the Network manager has Mobile Broadband tab and you can setup the thing just by entering country, provider and plan. Afterwards I can see the number and APN on the connection.

The Ubuntu wiki that I have linked to in this answer has lost of info about it and Mobile Broadband cards:
