Networking usb tethering modem
Fairly new to slackware and have found that I cannot use my virginmobile hotspot via usb tethering any help?
Are you using NetworkManager ? Under KDE/XFCE/?
yes i have the network manager running but I cant do anything with it
I got the information below from various places. I haven't tested it, since I don't have the modem or the broadband service.
You might have to switch your modem into the "serial" mode of operation. It probably defaults to the "storage" mode.
Create the file "/etc/usb_modeswitch.conf" containing the following.
Make sure that you have set the executable permission on "/etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager" in order for it to start.
