I've successfully got a T-Mobile web'n'walk usb modem working on an old desktop with Xubuntu by following this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php? ... 3g+dongles
. The method I followed uses the latest version of Network Manager 0.7 from this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=797059
It was very straight forward in Xubuntu. Having installed the updated Network Manager, all I did was plug in the usb modem and all worked beautifully.
I've tried to install Network Manager 0.7 within Elyssa on two different boxes by following the same steps, but have been unable to get it to run the new 0.7 version. Do you know what extra needs to be done to install and run Network Manager 0.7?
I'd like to be able to use my 3G modem with Elyssa as this is the LTS release. Also I noticed that Xubuntu is using a slightly later version of the kernel, so I'm not sure if this makes a difference or will stop the 3G modem working?
