I'm in the UK and my Broadband died after a severe rainstorm got into the copper wiring between me and the telephone exchange.
Last winter I used a three diongle very successfully, but after I funded it, I poped it into my mail computer running Mint 11 and lo nothing !
So I tried to enable it but the username and password bit got me stuck.
I can ping from the terminal but firefox does not recognise it as a route through to an internet connection. Grrr....
I'm having to use windows 7 pro and I'm desperate to bet back to Mint !
Any thoughts very very welcome !
