Connecting Laptop to the Internet using USB-UTMS/HSDPA-Modem
I am currently running "Slackware 14" and everything is going well. I am currently connecting to the Internet using a LAN connection to my router (ADSL Line).
Unfortunately the line is not very reliable (which is not Slackware's fault, it's the Telecom provider's) and I would like to have a backup using UMTS/HSDPA.
"lsusb" displays my surfstick as follows:
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 19d2:2000 ZTE WCDMA Technologies MSM MF627/MF628/MF628+/MF636+ HSDPA/HSUPA
I already had a look at the "Slackbook" notably
and tried out "pppsetup" but I am not sure if I need to do furter configuration (usb_modeswitch).
Has anyone tried connecting to the Internet with an USB-Surfstick-Modem?
Have a good day,
