Re: gprs connect cards

I guess the easiest thing would be buy a gprs mobile phone with
usb cable and use that as a modem, but I've got the same
problem: do you know if that works with Linux?
this worked fine for me last month in bonasola (near la spezia),
using a sony vaio pcg-r505tl running linux 2.4.21-pre7, through a
siemens gs55 and wind (15euro/month unlimited access package). i
append the simple script /root/bin/GPRS below to show which kernel
modules were needed; munge to taste.
the data rate was slow but usable. the cost of the cable was
outrageous (50 euro!), but i suppose worth it in the end. much
more economical than the pcmcia cards that do the same thing for
data but have no support for voice.
