Download package md300config_1-1ubuntu2_all_1.deb
    Install it by typing this command at the terminal: 
      sudo dpkg -i md300config_1-1ubuntu2_all_1.deb
      (or double-click on it to install it using GDebi)

      Copy and paste the following lines of codes into a new file in your favorite text editor save it to your /home/USERNAME/ directory as .wvdial.conf (beware of the dot in front of the filename). Change the accesspointname, username, and password according to the instruction from your operator. If the system do not require a username and password, then leave the line as it is.

      ##### End of .wvdial.conf

      If you have not done so, install gnome-ppp package using synaptic or type the following command at the terminal:
      sudo aptitude install gnome-ppp
      Now fire-up gnome-ppp (It's on the Internet SubMenu), connect your MD300 to your computer, wait a few second to let your Ubuntu identify the new device (nothing will show up, but you can see the messages with dmesg command at the terminal). Now click Setup button and then Detect Button, close the Setup Dialog and Click Connect.
