I've installed many things trying to make this modem works, until I finally found something that should work on the official website.

Now it isn't working, and I hope if I uninstall all other things and start a clean install again it will.

I have no idea where and how it was installed, and I don't remember anymore where I got all stuff and even if I did, I don't think they came with any uninstall method. So, anyone could tell me how I can clean up all that?

Check this guide : Uninstalling Applications in Mac OS X and also try with this AppCleaner Uninstaller.

Thanks, I've tried AppCleaner, it's great stuff. I'll probably use it more. :) – cregox Mar 9 '10 at 1:06

Well, I finally solved it.

First I tried using SuspiciousPackage, a great Quicklook plugin to show some selected details information about Packages. But that didn't help. Thanks to that I figured it might not be a problem of bad installation after all.

Then I decided to look at the Console for All Messages and started trying to diagnose it and understand what was going on. Searched on google for the error message "Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/cu.HUAWEIMobile-Modem", found this great link and found a solution:

Create (or replace, I had no file tho) the file /etc/ppp/options with just these lines:


Then configure it properly on the Network Preferences pane and that's it! :)

I'm just posting this from my new connection!
