Talking Wireless Broadband


Just about to jump into Linux for the first time, after Puppy LiveCD intro. I use an O2 wireless broadband connection (the only way in the rural W Ireland) and O2 have no experience with Linux.

It is just a USB device that appears to Windows as a drive containing the autorun installation for Win XP. The device is manufactured by Huawei Technologies, HOSTA63.11.06.01.02.116.

It is the last puzzle before installing Linux and leaving Windows behind so any help is very welcome.

Peter, I've seen a guide for that on another forum, but I'm at work now and can't access that forum. If you send me a quick reminder in the evening, I'll look it up for you.

Cheers and happy new year
