It most likely will show up as (/dev/ttyUSB0
I think you need to get it out of your head that it is a pci card. Most of them show up as usb devices. I know it is confusing and I don't know why but that is the way it is, I think.

That is true.. the EVDO card I have from Verizon is a PCMCIA card, but it is viewed as a USB device.. I really, really, don't understand why they made it like that..

Thanks Comprookie. I'm already using this app with my external USB modem but can't get a option to search for the interneal device. And I still don't know where it gets mounted. It might not be USB0 as I am using other USB devices. I also can't find a editable file for the app.

I'm terribly disappointed that nobody can help me any further here. Now I have a great laptop with a embedded 3G card but I can't use it.

OK, looking at your lsusb output, is this your internal modem? Or you had an external modem connected when you ran lsusb?

Do 3g cards dial out like evdo? When I set up my EVDO I had to pick the tty0 device out in the modem list. Assign a login, number to call and whatnot.

Hi Emerson. Yes, the E220 modem is my external modem I'm using as my embedded one is not working yet.

tnrooster. The vodafone app I'm using with my USB modem works like that. Putting username and password and also the apn and connecting.

I was thinking if the Vodafone app can be told where the internal card is it will work, but I don't know where the internel one is mounted and also not where to tell the Vodafone app where to look.

I don't think we'll get anywhere without identifying the device. I assume your 3G card was turned on when you ran lspci? Did you say you dual-boot? Please look into Windows Device Manager (I hope Vista has such a thing) and try to find it there. Notice how it is connected, what's its name, ID, etc. 413c:8137 is not in Linux usbid database, maybe this is the internal modem?

What version of Linux kernel you are running? Support for Dell Wireless 5520 was added to 2.6.23-rc7.

Edit: Forget my previous post, 413c:8137 is Dell Wireless 5520

Ah! Seems like we're getting somewhere now. I'm running 2.6.22. Is there a repository I can add to update. I've downloaded the kernel manually, but can't figure out how to install it.

Before you start all this fun with new kernel we could try to tell the current kernel what this device is for:

sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=413c product=8137

This should create at least one /dev/ttyUSBx device, possibly two or three. Do ls /dev/ttyUSB* before and after modprobe command to see what happened.
