I have noticed that 99% of people that use any Linux can get on line.
Which begs the question why can't I.
I was on line but had to change the ISP as it is due to close down.
I went over to T-Mobile web 'n' walk it uses the mobile phone network.
It has a wireless network connection called Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN.
Also uses a GlobeTrotter GI4xx mass storage network interface.
The actual device I'm using is a "dongle" ie it just plugs right into a usb and it is NOT 3G
So anyone out there get me online please, I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one on this planet that uses T-Mobile web 'n' walk.
I currently use ubuntu 8.10 and had no problems using it and it was all straight forward, and a happy bunny was I, till now.
I'm willing to move over to Mint as it's based on what I'm already using.
Could the answer, to this quest be in layman's terms please.
