Is anyone here using 3 Mobile Broadband on a linux machine? Specifically Ubuntu Lucid but probably any debian.
All I can get from the dongle is a flashing green light.
Am I correct in thinking the light will change if there is a signal, regardless of the ubuntu Network Connection setup?
I have the dongle number and my own details in the Network Connection's Basic setup but cannot find anything to put in the Advanced section.
Old online references (1 year+) suggest adding various scripts to cope with the installation but a later site says newest OS only needs to have the details added to Network Connections because the system was patched for this.
Location is Bristol. I've tried four "locations", all high up, including outside the house (three or four Wireless signals but no 3 Mobile). I tried the 3 web site for location status and it told me I could only search for one thing at a time - all I entered was the required postcode! :(
I do not have a suitable Windows machine to try it on - might attempt a setup on my brother's XP over the weekend. Why do these companies not add a (presumably) simple linux setp on their disk?!
