Question Will Dell 1558 internal UMTS modem work straight after 13.37 install?


Hi All

I am currently running slackware 13.37 in virtualbox on my Dell 1558. I would really like to install it for real to my HDD to get the speed benefit. My only way to connect to the internet is via my internal Dell UMTS modem. Will this work after the install or do I need to take some precautions before the time and download the right apps files now while I have access?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

If you don't get a reply check out the HCL here on LQ, it has a very extensive listing of Linux compliant hardware. Good luck!

It works 'out of the box' with ubuntu 10.04 and up... I just don't want to end up with an install without internet access as it is most difficult to fix anything then and to get on to the internet to fix it

Well it should probably out of the box for Slackware as well. If it was me I would take the risk and go for it. Your call.
If it does not work a re-load of Ubuntu does not take a lot of time.
