Best distro for USB stick modem support


Hi all,

I'm obliged to rely on a HSDPA usb modem for my internet connection. It's a Huawei K3520 from Vodafone. Does anyone know of a distro which will recognise this device for what it is and not as some pseudo CD rom?

Thanks,

CC.

Ubuntu 8.10 can handle K3520, it took me 2 secs to configure it. No driver is needed anymore!

I take it back. It's now running fine with Ubuntu 8.10. Just needed a bit of additional tinkering to get it going. Thanks for the tip!
