I have now established a Ethernet LAN, with SAMBA, with this desktop and one Thinkpad 600 notebook running Linux Mandriva 10.1 OE. I would like to use this modem from my Thinkpad running Linux.
On the back of the card is some information:
Sierra Wireless, Inc. CDMA 2000
Part# 1200470 and 3 bar-codes as follows:
I don't know which ship-set it is. Waiting for response from the manufacturer.
The Card is multifunction and can also be used as a phone. I will only use it for Internet in linux.
Anybody using this card?
Can anybody give some clues, advice on how to proceed.
well the googling that i did brought me this info..
the chipset as i can find runs on the MSM5105 Chipset from qualcomm. i couldn't find anything that spacifically stated that fact as #1 i don't have the initiative to run thru every hit i get on different combinations of sierra+aircard+555+linux+chipset and #2 i have that kind of time right now.
the second thing i found was this site. Sierra Wireless AirCard 555 for linux
this was the first thing i found when looking up your card. go figure... The second hit on google
i hope that this helps...
oh... and i did a hcl check on LQ and mandrivalinux.com and didn't find either the chipset listed or the sierra company name. good luck... i hope that the second link helps.
