3 mobile broadband


HI All,

I recently purchased a USB based dongle from 3G Mobile to get mobile broadband. AS usual there is no support for linux.

How would I configure / use this device with SUSE ?

regards,

Steven Matthews

Is it recognised by your computer ?
If so, you will have to set it up as a dial up modem.

You need to know the model number of the dongle, there are several.
