I am wondering if anyone has successfully install the Subject device
on Debian? My research has shown that some have had success on Ubuntu
9.1 but I have not been able to locate any Debian success posts.
This is a 3G modem and, in my remote location, gets much faster
downloads, on winbloz, then anything else I have tried. It beats the
AT&T sierra device by far. Sierra is supported in the kernel but not
this Novatel USB760 AFAIK.
Any info or pointers are welcomed. I really need to get this working on
Debian and don't want to switch to Ubuntu if possible.
PS The Novatel is really strange. Just tried to burn a Ubuntu cd to
check it out and the Novatel had to be unplugged before k3b would run.
It seems the system thinks it is a cdrom device????
This might be related to the purpose of the usb-modeswitch package. Perhaps
that will help get you started.
Thanks for that hint. I tried that in sid but could not get the modem
to connect. I exchanged it for a MiFi and am attempting to connect to
that with my current wifi adapters. Have one that will connect, on XP
using wpa, but am still trying to get it working on sid and testing in
At least my wife has fast downloads now. :-(
