Maxis USB 3G broadband that come with USB 3G Modem (Huawei E220).. is can be used in Ubuntu (8.10) , XUbuntu(8.10)..
virtually without any additional software to be installed.

here I will explain how to configure the Network Setting in Ubuntu to have it connected with
“Maxis Broadband”..

setup the broadband modem
select service provider countries..
scroll down until found “my | malaysia”
[ad#postad]
select service provider countries

after selecting malaysia.. a list of ISP will appear such as below:
select ISP

select a Maxis 3G (contract). .. [later could be just as “Maxis 3G (broadband)”.. if someone willing to update and poke the one who did it earlier.]

summary of the ISP

and icon will saying new connection created..

almost done.. perhaps.. the only thing to change is the maxis APN to become “maxisbb”..

then we continue by clicking on the network icon ..select edit-connection..

edit-connection

then a Network Connection properties will appear..
click on top tab to “Mobile Broadband”..

press edit… and answer allow the keyring thing..
allow keyring..

change the APN from “unet” to “maxisbb” ..
apn unet

maxisbb apn
the previous one is “unet”.. which only applied to the postpaid 3G.

then clicking on network select to connect the Maxis 3G (Contract)..

This APN thing only sensitive to Maxis and Digi.. but any value is acceptable for Celcom..
