I instilled ubuntu few days and everything is working just fine except few problems.

My main problem is that I can't my net stick Novatel Ovation MC950D USB HSUPA. I got Asus K40IN series. My computer recognise the usb and i even found the provider of my connection. but it shows me "disconnected". Maybe I need to download certain drivers (I found few articles with instruction but didn't have any success with the instructions).

Also I got another problem (maybe they are related) when i turn on my computer i get 2 messages before ubuntu start running: "modeprobe: no such directory and some directory name with lib"

Thank you very much if you can help me!
