The 3Comm huawei E1750 USB modem works with Leopard, but does not work with Snow Leopard.
Any assistance re drivers etc would be much appreciated. The Huawei of 3 Comm web sites are not very helpful. The Huawai web site mentions a driver but downloading and unpacking does not help

    remember to setup the apn on modem as per your provider details.

    I just use the driver not the 3rd party software.

    once the driver is installed I rebooted my mac plugged in my huawei modem.

    Then open network prefs.

    I created a new network location and called it HSDPA.

    My modem was recognised as a network port. So removed all the other ports, airport, ethernet etc

    My provider is t-mobile

    So I created a modem configuration called t-mobile but that is not necessary.
    (the following details may be provider specfic'

    telephone number *99#
    account name blank
    password blank

    check the box 'show modem status in menu bar'

    Then i click 'advanced'

    in the modem tab

    Vendor : other
    Model : HUAWEI Mobile Connect 3 G modem

    leave everything else as default click ok


    I apply this setup, then from the menubar click the phone icon and choose connect

    worked first time for me.
