Is it actually possible to connect to mobile broadband by the command line


Hello guys, i have found my Gnu/Linux experience to be limited because i use mobile broadband. My mobile broadband requires a email address and password to log in before it will connect, and the only way i know how to connect is with network manager. I have never attempted a net install of any distro because of this limitation. I was just wondering if it is actually possible to connect from the command line? and if so, how?

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wvdial Check this out. It looks like it is not Arch specific.

I have a Sierra USB-connected "puck" that does 3G/4G-LTE. The puck is a dedicated cell phone modem. With win-doze, it has software that knows all of the connection and handshake details -- stored during initial setup.

The actual puck device is the Sierra Wireless 250U.
Sierra Wireless.

Thanks in advance,
