And more... Thank goodness for Bing!
I recovered the device in Network Connections by replacing the empty username/password with blank and blank. Following further research I replaced blank in both cases with three. In both cases I get everything working until the actual connection stage, which SYSLOG returns as "Got failure code: No carrier" whenver I click on the connection in NC.
I replaced my 074... number with 99# (which it originally was when I first started) and added what one web site says is the default PIN: 0000. Still the same results. If I put anything into the Network field it disables the Apply button.
I have been trying to get AT commands to work (trying to find a proper PIN) but telnet in Terminal does not seem to accept them, possibly because I have given it the wrong IP but I don't really know.
Does anyone know how I can send AT commands to the dongle?
By the way, following a hint on one web site I looked again at the dongle with lsusb. The code has changed, presumably by turning off the Card Storage feature (that went off when I installed usb-modeswitch above). The new code is 12d1:14ac - which is fortunate because the file /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/12d1:1446 has that product code but not 1446.
