Hi once more,
Thank you for the kind posts I have bought my dongle, but am at a loss of how to connect to the web using it.
The dongle works in Vista.
Using Wine with PcLos is the nearest I have got to getting on line. I now have an icon on my desktop which leads me to the set up window. But no connection. From here I have looked at the help manual and other bits and pieces.
lsusb in the shell reveals the dongle to be recognised.
Installing as PCC >> Network and Internet >> Set up a new network etc GPRS/Edge/3G does not connect me.
Using select Network and Internet > Set up a new network interface
Next select - Alolog telephone modem (POTS) - click next
Select - Manual Choice and click next
Now choose which serial port your modem is connected to ( not sure about this, tried several) and click next
Select Your Provider ( Australia is not listed here, Could not nominate provider) and click next
and filling in the other details that were asked for resulted in, no connection.
The default pin number given to me from my ISP was 0000. The PUK code was not needed.
I realize this is not the most coherent post, I am trying to help myself, but at a loss of where to from here. Thank you,
