Adding a 3 HSDPA USB modem - is this possible??????

I am not only new to Linux, I have no idea what the heck anyone means when they use pc jargon!!!!!!! I got the 3 modem working on Microsoft software but some well meaning guy decided I would be better off with Linux & I don't have any info on how to use it at all!!!??????

I have looked at similar threads but the page won't enlarge so I can't read it!!!??

Please help. Regards Cathryn

These little silly huawei modems should work with later kernels without much hassle. You should be able to connect using it just configuring your dialer with the correct information, just like any regular modem. However it might be a bit tricky on some distros/kernels to get it running.

Knowing the distribution of linux that you use or plan to use will allow us to give you better advice. If you wish, you can add that info on your profile, so you don't have to repeat it on all your posts.

Also, remember that extra symbols (??!!) are not gonna give you a faster response rate
