Slackware :: Mobile Broadband On Slack ?

May 31, 2011

I installed slackware on my laptop last night, :-) very happy. Can't wait to learn more about linux and even computers in general. I've already learnt heaps since entering the alternative operating system world. Anyways, i've got xfce up and running with slack now, created a new user 4 my self. And now i'd like to get some updates and stuff, but i need to use my mobile broadband. It's a telsta dongle If that changes the circumstances. How would i go about setting this up?

Debian :: Mobile Broadband On Squeeze ?

Aug 7, 2011

I have an Asus K50IJ laptop and everything works great, but now I'm moving house and need to switch to a mobile broadband dongle. From what I can tell the major providers here in the UK don't support Linux, so I'm hoping someone can help me with the question of mobile broadband on debian and what does and doesn't work by default. I'm happy to get my hands dirty and keep learning about linux and debian, but I'm definitely still a beginner in both. I couldn't find what I needed searching the man pages, wiki or forum, but point in me in the right direction if you think I've missed something useful. Ideally I'd like to use Virgin Mobile so I've asked them for specs on the dongle they supply and I'll post that info when I get it. Any help would really be appreciated as I rely on the internet pretty heavily.

Fedora :: F14 Updates When Using Mobile Broadband?

Nov 7, 2010

In the previous versions of Fedora, the check for updates when connected through mobile broadband appeared disabled, which made sense as I don't want updates when connected through a mobile phone but will wait until I'm connected through either ethernet or wifi.

Took my laptop into work on Friiday (9am Friday is the time concert tickets go onsale). Connected to mobile broadband using Fedora 14 and got the updates available icon, surely this shouldn't happen?

Fedora Installation :: Can't Use CDMA 1x Mobile Broadband?

Jun 30, 2009

I tried at Fedora 10, didn't work, and then Ubuntu 9.0.4, in the hope of it may work, my CDMA 1x Mobile broadband.( it works well under Win XP). and it didn't work.And then it comes the Fedora 11, still the same problem.

Seems Linux cannot recoginize my CMDA 1x Mobile Bbroadband, becuase the newwork manager doesn't pop up with messages of detecting a new hardware.

And when I run the desmeg:

usb usb1: New USB device found, idVendor=1d6b, idProduct=0002
usb usb1: New USB device strings: Mfr=3, Product=2, SerialNumber=1
usb usb1: Product: EHCI Host Controller
usb usb1: Manufacturer: Linux ehci_hcd
usb usb1: SerialNumber: 0000:00:1d.7
usb usb1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
hub 1-0:1.0: USB hub found

Ubuntu Networking :: 8.04 LTS - No Settings For Mobile Broadband

Jan 27, 2010

I have an USB (Huawei 1751) modem for mobile broadband. I had it up and running in Ubuntu 9.10 but I had to clear the computer for various reasons. I have decided to only use LTS versions so for the reinstall I have used Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. I have downloaded and installed usb_modeswitch and can see that the modes is changed to the right value. After that I wanted to add a new mobile broadband connection in the network connections wizzard - but cannot see any settings for mobile broadband. I am sure it must be possible - but where is this function hidden in version 8.04 ?

Ubuntu Networking :: Unstable Mobile Broadband ?

Mar 6, 2010

I have just switched to Ubuntu from Win 7 RC. So far its been fun, learning to use terminal and all. But I have got a problem now I cannot find a solution to.

I am using 3 Mobile Broadband. The thing just worked - I plugged it in, created a new connection, modified config a little and was happily browsing.

However, it started acting out yesterday. When I boot the system with the modem plugged in, the USB stick is recignised and NetworkManager starts connecting (I have auto connect on). It then shows the "connected" message, and generally appears working fine.

On the other hand, I cannot open a single page in Firefox, it shows the default server not found page.

I used the approach Windows taught me: close, open, retry. I unmount the 3 Mobile Broadband drive, pull the modem out and reconnect it. NetworkManager then does it's job and this time everything works.

I nether had this problem in Win7 or Vista. It looks to me something goes wrong during the booting when the modem is plugged in.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Use My Mobile Broadband Once - Then It Stopped

May 3, 2010

I decided to give 10.04 a shot, and upon first boot, I was able to setup and use my Rogers Rocket mobile broadband stick. When I rebooted, I found that it was in the network settings, but I was unable to connect, nor did it show up as an option in the drop-menu. I played with the terminal trying to see if anything was wrong, but everything seems normal, which is to say I don't even know what I'm looking for in regards to this type of connection.

I obviously know now that it works, I just don't know what made it stopped for the time being. I'm thinking of doing a fresh install over the current partition, and trying to work the issue from there.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mobile Broadband Not Recognized

May 12, 2010

I recently made a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 and my mobile broadband no longer works. When I plug it in, the set-up wizard does not appear, and even when I run the wizard manually, the modem is not recognised. I know the modem works as when the laptop ran 9.10 it all worked perfectly.

For the record, it is a Huawei E1550 and has 3 Mobile Broadband Pay-as-you-go.

Ubuntu Networking :: Which Mobile Broadband Works Best With 10.10 Out Of Box

Dec 26, 2010

In a separate thread I discuss my issues with getting my Blackberry 9650 tethering with Verizon and Ubuntu 10.10 with bluetooth. I'm still hoping to get that working, but in the mean time, I've actually started to think about perhaps getting a mobile broadband card from a US provider separate from my blackberry anyway - preferably one that works right out of box with Ubuntu.

Does anyone here have any recommendations? I know there's a lot of compatible devices, but maybe someone here can recommend a provider (I don't have to stick with Verizon - willing to go AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, etc.) and a USB mobile broadband device that'll work pretty smoothly?

I added the profile Network->edit Connections-> Mobile Broadband (tab)i have given all right parameters. Still i didnt manage to connect. I feel like lost connection with the World without the internet.
