Hi there! I just registered (although I've lurked here often) following a search result about using a Rogers usb stick...
If you don't mind I'll pick up where LisaLiska left off.
I am helping out an older gentleman who totaled his Win machine (a brand new Acer Aspire 5920 laptop). After some tinkering I decided to stop wasting my time and just wipe it to install Gloria 7. Perfect, beautiful, wifi working. But at the home he lives at they do not provide wifi so he bought a Rogers stick, which I know nothing about.
On the sticker in the back it says Model MF636, HSUPA USB modem and from what I can gather, it looks like ZTE is the manufacturer.
When I plug it in, it is not even detected, either as a flash drive or a modem. After reading a bit I install wvdialconf and after the scan here is what it says:
Sorry, no modem was detected! Is it in use by another program?
Did you configure it properly with setserial?
I then installed setserial and ran it. The list of commands came up and...
And thats where I'm at. Somehow I doubt this is what I need. But I don't know enough about Linux to really understand what I'd be getting into and some instructions or suggestions would really be appreciated.
Thank you very much for your time
