You must first click on the "Add"  button on the right.  Then follow the instructions in your link:

Observe the device name below "Create a connection for this mobile broadband device".
"HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES HUAWEI Mobile" should already be selected in drop down.
If not SELECT it and CLICK on "FORWARD".
NOTE:- If this device does not shows here that means
your Ubuntu is still not treating this device as USB MODEM.

SELECT country (e.g. India) from the list CLICK on "FORWARD".

SELECT PROVIDER (e.g. Tata Indicom (Photon+)) from the list CLICK on "FORWARD".

You will see "Your Device" and "Your Provider", CLICK "Apply" button.

FILL following information under "Mobile Broadband" tab.
Number: #777
Username: internet
Password: internet
Optionally you can CHECK "Connect Automatically" option.
CLICK on "Apply" button

TYPE first user password and CLICK on "Authenticate".
You will see "Tata Indicom (Photon+)" in Mobile Broadband connection list.

PART-III :- Starting "Mobile Broadband" Connection
Step1 : RIGHT CLICK on "Network Manager" icon on top-left corner of the screen.
Step2 : CHECK "Enable Mobile Broadband" option.
Step3 : Now CLICK on the same icon.
Step4 : CLICK on "Tata Indicom (photon+) connection1"

Which part are you having trouble with?

That looks like what the instructions say it should.  Are you using Debian based system or Redhat based system?  Can you open a command prompt and enter the following command.

wvdialconf

and then enter this command

wvdial

You may have to sudo or su to enter the commands ie sudo wvdialconf  or just enter su and then the root password and then the command.
