This guide is summary from two sources,

I combine and edit this two guide to succesfully install digi broadband in my ubuntu lucid lynx,

Step 1;
Make sure the device inserted are detected as a modem, not only as a storage device.

To check;
Plug in the device, open terminal and type : lsusb
If there is something like;

Proceed to step 3;
If not, go to step 2;

Step 2;
install usb-modeswitch and usb-modeswitch-data
in terminal,type :
sudo apt-get install -yq usb-modeswitch usb-modeswitch-data
(after install, replug the device)

Step 3;
Launch terminal, enter this command to install wvdial
sudo apt-get install wvdial

Step 4;
Once install, edit the wvdial conf file
(launch terminal and type this command)
sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf

edit and insert/enter the following info;

[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 230400
Init1 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","3gdgnet"
Init3 =
Area Code =
Phone = *99***1#
Username = digi
Password = digi
Ask Password = 0
Dial Command = ATDT
Stupid Mode = 1
Compuserve = 0
Force Address =
Idle Seconds = 0
DialMessage1 =
DialMessage2 =

Step 5;
launch terminal and type;
sudo wvdial

p/s;if wvdial can't start,unplug and plug back the device.
