Their application isn't supported in Linux! Only Windows/Macs

Thanks for replying to my information. Searched Google and it had about 10 ideas and looked into most and tried several ideas they had like using terminal and entering "sudu wvconfig" for modem discovery on your laptop. Came up with and error message no such program. others were programs that i quite did not understand how to handle and install.

What I am trying to do is install Verizon Wireless program on CD for the wireless card. The program is VZ Access Manager for card model: PC5750 this is not a USB type card. This program allows you to connect to the card and of course you must enter in the mobile number that the usage will be charged too. My next attempt was to tether the Blackberry 8830 to use as the modem and see if this works..

Seem to like Ubuntu a lot and don't want to get discourage with it and not be able to use items like the wireless card.

Do you know if there is any programs like "Streets" by Microsoft out there for Ubuntu. This is for mapping out directions for traveling. I have that and tried that as well. They just don't start and run.

The VZ Access Manager opened to its folders like run, Start.exe and I tried to open them and nothing happened. Your advise is greatly appreciated.

thanks

the PCMCIA card from verizon actually has a USB port in it internally, which then internally connects to the evdo device (at least the one we had did) I didn't understand the purpose of doing it that way, but that's what they did..

Foget the VZ access manager unless you are running windows, that software will ONLY work with Windows. if you wish to use the card with Linux then you will have to follow one of the how-to's


so when the card is plugged in what is the output listed for the card when you type lspci in the shell ? and the output for lsusb ?

Theres really no reason to run anything on the 5740. I just swapped to the 5750 but havent had a chance to see about fedora with it.

With the 5740, it was automatic. Insert, setup dialup account using the device(ttyac0?) as the modem and all the standard account settings for verizon. Such as #777 for the number and your10digitnumber@vzw3g.com for the login with no password. Double "" is a null password so if youre using the "connection wizard" because you'll have to feed it something to continue.

The 5750 should be no different. Should show in /log/messages when you inset the card. All said and done there should be a new device created. Use that device as modem and set the dial config as a standard verizon account.
