Trying to use Qualcomm 9201 WWAN card. Not sure where to start.


Hi all. I've got a Lenovo T500 thinkpad with a Qualcomm HS-USB 9201 mini-pci WWAN card (under Verizon). I'm having trouble finding any references on how to get it working in Linux. Specifically I'm using Ubuntu 8.10. Output below:

Output of lshal that pertains to my WWAN card:

I've installed the Linux version of VZAccess Manager, but it doesn't see the card (wishful thinking on my part...). I'd appreciate it if someone can point me in the right direction on this.

Thanks.

It would seem that I forgot to post the output of uname -r

Code:
2.6.27-7-generic

Sorry to bump my own post, but here's what I've tried so far.

Since the original post, I upgraded to Ubuntu 9.04 beta, hoping that it might have better support for this card. It seems to have an updated version of NetworkManager, but the system still doesn't see the device as a modem.

I created a new "mobile broadband" connection within NetworkManager and filled in the relevant details, but no go.

I installed gnome-ppp and tried to create the connection that way, but gnome-ppp fails out with these messages:

GNOME PPP: Connecting...
GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> Ignoring malformed input line: ";Do NOT edit this file by hand!"
GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> Cannot open /dev/modem: No such file or directory
GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> Cannot open /dev/modem: No such file or directory
GNOME PPP: STDERR: --> Cannot open /dev/modem: No such file or directory
GNOME PPP: Unable to KILL wvdial process!


Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Thanks.
