Help me please!


I have a novatel 727 usb modem. I just installed Mint 7 and am having a time getting the modem to work. Has any one else had success?

you have not specified the exact model number so offer a generic thru google
http://www.nteloswireless.com/1pdfs/...nuxInstall.pdf

BTW you appear to have a flip-flop.

the first time its installed its seen as a cdrom....to autoload drivers in the ms world.

the pdf says

Code:
eject /dev/scd1
but you have not specified your distro so it may not be that device.
with a different modem to you i eject /dev/sr1....where sr0 is my cd drive.

YMMV
