Suse 9.1 & ntl's ambit usb modem
hi there, im a complete newby to linux and am having trouble installing my ambit usb modem supplied by ntl.
my friend has a windows network and suse connected to the internet fine over the network but when i try to install the usb modem i cant get it to work. the modem is visible in the modems section in yast but when i try to configure it it tries to configure it as a dial up modem, whereas i have a cable connection that is "always on".
im running suse 9.1 and win xp pro on a hp ze4500 laptop (amd 2500+, 512mb ram)
any help with this would be much appreciated.
thanks in advance
