Connect it to your linux netbook and open the terminal (command line interface where you can type commands) and then type > lsusb -v and let us know the results.
I know this is going to be tough, but I do not use your distribution, so we need to know if it actually detects the hardware.
Also tell us how do you connect to internet using the dongle on windows? Do you need to use user and password to connect? I mean to ask, is it kind of dial up connection?
I hope I'm in the right place to speak to you, Chaitanya. I did what you said and this is what I got back:
bInterfaceClass 9 Hub
bInterfaceSubClass 0 Unused
bInterfaceProtocol 0 Full speed (or root) hub
bEndpointAddress 0x81 EP 1 IN
Transfer Type Interrupt
Synch Type None
Usage Type Data
wMaxPacketSize 0x0004 1x 4 bytes
can't get hub descriptor: Operation not permitted
can't get device qualifier: Operation not permitted
can't get debug descriptor: Operation not permitted
YOU ASKED: ...tell us how do you connect to internet using the dongle on windows? Do you need to use user and password to connect? I mean to ask, is it kind of dial up connection?
On the Windows netbook, I do need to use a PASSWORD to connect.
