Blackjack tethering via USB, not recognized? (debian)


I have been attempting to tether my Blackjack to my Debian laptop to take advantage of my unlimited data plan.

After I plug it in, Debian doesn't respond to it at all. Under the network manager there are no options for USB0, or PPP0.

Any ideas? Am I missing some packages?

Thanks!

In Debian I used wvdial to connect to my Palm Treo's evdo network. This is an old thread, but it gave me the info I needed. Check out the wvdial.conf examples, You didn't say which network you were trying to attach to (verizon, sprint etc.), but there examples for all in the thread.

Good luck
Hope this helped.

Edit: In Fedora 11/12 Gnome, I now use Network Manager instead of wvdial, which works just as well. I'm tethering with a usb cable.

Ah, thank you much! I finally (after some configuration, and about an hour of manually downloading .deb's) got it working. And now it allows me to connect!

Thanks!

PS- If anyone could tell me why LQ is showing me as using Ubuntu, that'd be great... (see bottom left corner of user info next to post)

On the bottom of this page is a "Contact Us" button. I'm sure if there's a bug in the distro recognition app, Jeremy would like to hear about it.
