I have on my desk a 791L with the USB cable.  And I have a spare
desktop machine here -- in good running order -- with which to
experiment.  Finally, I have an IPCop 2.1.8 installation CD.

So I start by:

(1) installing IPCop

(2) turn on the VerizonWireless AirCard 791L

(3) plug the USB cable into one of the USB ports of the new IPCop machine

Installation is successful.  Next, I:

(4) remove the installation CD

(5) continue the installation by naming the machine

and then I stall, at the dialog asking configuration type for RED
interface.  The options are:

   - analog modem
   - GSM/3G modem
   - ISDN
   - PPPoE
   - PPTP
   - static
   - DHCP

What now?
