Is the dongle recognised by the distribution you're using? And: Which one would that be? Still the original (Linpus, I gather), or something else? What works how depends on this, so please tell us. I'm pretty confident this can be solved (I'm using a bluetooth dongle and a 3G phone to connect to the net pretty effortlessly).
If you have to, I'd switch to another distribution - I'm using Ubuntu on my EeePC, and it works like a charm.
Additionally, I think this issue'd better be placed in the Netbook/Notebook forum instead of the Intro space; I'll gladly remove my comment if you want to use your own starting point in some other way...
