I tried that in sid but could not get the modem to connect. I exchanged it for a MiFi and am attempting to connect to that with my current wifi adapters. Have one that will connect, on XP using wpa, but am still trying to get it working on sid and testing in debian.I am wondering if anyone has successfully install the Subject device on Debian? My research has shown that some have had success on Ubuntu 9.1 but I have not been able to locate any Debian success posts.This might be related to the purpose of the usb-modeswitch package. Perhaps that will help get you started.
This is a 3G modem and, in my remote location, gets much faster downloads, on winbloz, then anything else I have tried. It beats the
AT&T sierra device by far. Sierra is supported in the kernel but not this Novatel USB760 AFAIK.
Any info or pointers are welcomed. I really need to get this working on Debian and don't want to switch to Ubuntu if possible.
PS The Novatel is really strange. Just tried to burn a Ubuntu cd to check it out and the Novatel had to be unplugged before k3b would run.
It seems the system thinks it is a cdrom device????
So now you are connecting via 802.11 wireless rather than through the cell network (EVDO or whatever)?
The USB760 Modem connected to the Verizon 3G network and the MiFi does
as well. The MiFi connects to tne network and supplies a Secure connection for up to 5 different computers located, they say, within a 50 foot radius of the MiFi. This way I don't have to have any wired connections for others to use the network. My problem is that the connection to be MiFi has to be WPA1. That is new to me as I used
only open networks in the past.
Maybe someone can help you if you give some more information about your wireless hardware, like the applicable line from lspci. Are you using network-manager to connect, iwconfig, wicd, or something else?
Here is what i am trying to set up now. The module is in the 2.6.3X kernels.
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0846:6a00 NetGear, Inc. WG111(v2) 54 Mbps Wireless [RealTek RTL8187L]

I am working my way through the docs on ndiswrapper, wpa-supplicant setup, wicd configuration, etc. I am close now, I have the interface trying to connect to the correct network but wpa isn't working right now. It is just a matter of getting the wpa-supplicant.conf and the interfaces file set up correctly.
