Exclamation huawei e173 not detected as modem-Xubuntu - 09-21-2013, 06:31 PM

hi all, i just joined this forum lately although have own the dell inspron mini 1010 for quite sometime.
I am a new linux user with absolutely no skills or prior knowledge about the os, i only wanted to explore it
i first installed ubuntu 12 desktop but it was laggy as hell!!!..
i saw posts on this forum stating that xubuntu 10.04 works fine without lags. i have xubuntu installed now...the version 10.04 and its truly sanppier.

as expected, my wifi adapter aint working and the only wired connection i have to install my wireless drivers is a huawei e173 modem but my problem is that it aint getting detected as a modem but rather as a disk drive (opening the contents to view files which are for windows installation, not linux).
i hope someone can guide me on how i can succesfully connect this modem on xubuntu 10.04...thanks
