Question Problem with reliance net connect usb on asus eee?


Hi, I am completely new to Linux. I have purchased an asus eee and loved the desktop. My problem is that I have recently picked up a reliance net connect usb and i want to make it work on my asus eee, but it does not have any drivers for linux (asus eee). If someone can help me, i would be very grateful. I am from Mumbai, India.

You need to be root, so preface the command with sudo like this:
Code:
sudo modprobe rest of the command
If it asks for a password, enter your password

Edit:
Checking those links, they both say run all these commands as root
On the eee do it like this:
sudo -i
Your prompt will change to show you are the root user.
The root user can damage your system if you type a command incorrectly, so pay attention.
Be careful, and close the terminal when you have finished


Also, see these links:

It is a kernel module ("driver").

Just follow the instructions from one of those sites.

Hi,
I know I am irritating you guys now. But when I type the command:
# modprobe usbdriver vendor = Ox19d2 product=Oxfffd
it gives me an error that says:
FATAL: module usbdriver not found

What does it mean and how do I solve this problem. Please ride me through this problem.
Thanks in advance

FATAL means that this is an error that cannot be recovered from.
Quote:
module usbdriver not found
Means that the module usbdriver cannot be found, because it does not exist, and therefore cannot be loaded.

Where in those simple guides did it say to modprobe usbdriver?
They say modprobe usbserial ....

-AND-

in your command line example, you have two further errors:

Code:
vendor = Ox19d2 product=Oxfffd
- There should not be spaces either side of the = sign
- The leading 0 is a ZERO not the letter "Oh"

And why are you using different vendor and product IDs that are different from those mentioned in the guides? Do you have a different product?
