usbserial not found in ubuntu jaunty (9.04)

Actually the usbserial module has been added to the kernal in ubuntu 9.04 (jaunty). Everyone using a phone or usb device to access internet will be having problem with that. To solve this please follow the following steps.

It is possible to pass the ids as kernel parameters.

1. Get your device’s vendor and product ids. Connect your device and type at terminal:

$ sudo lsusb

2. Open your menu.lst file to edit.

$ sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

3. Find your ubuntu kernel line.

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-13-generic root=UUID=c54f5577-285d-455d-8……

4. Add this line below it

usbserial.vendor=0xVVVV usbserial.product=0xPPPP

where VVVV and PPPP are vendor and product ids.
Restart your system, for the changes to take effect….

Now you need not modeprobe after connecting your device

    I have troubles with telia mobile internet.
    Modem is ZTE 636+
    I belive that the data is ok:
    DefaultVendor= 0x19d2
    DefaultProduct= 0x2000
    TargetVendor= 0x19d2
    TargetProduct= 0x0031

    ubuntu 9.04

    This is a part of My /boot/grub/menu.lst

    ## ## End Default Options ##

    title Ubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-15-generic
    uuid 50fa8f21-8c1f-4f2e-aec0-8a7adc78d961
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-15-generic root=UUID=50fa8f21-8c1f-4f2e-aec0-8a7adc78d961 ro quiet splash
    usbserial.vendor=0x19d2 usbserial.product=0x0031
    initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.28-15-generic
    quiet

    With the line inserted.

    lsusb does not show the the device is loaded.
    I would be nice with a trick.
