    Hi I am a very very very new user of Linux Mandriva. I have exactly the same problem here. I have a Sony Ericsson k790i cell phone and I used to use it as a edge modem to connect to the internet. I have the installation disk that contains the driver that makes my cell phone be recognised in Windows Xp but no driver for Linux.

    I dont even think Sony Ericsson (i am not sure though) has created any driver for Linux so is there any way I can use my cell phone and connect to the internet from Linux Mandriva????

    Thank You.

    Hi and Welcome !

    How do you connect this phone to PC, via bluetooth or Cable?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Hi.. Casper... I use the data cable i got with the phone. I tried using the blue tooth some time and that also works fine (in Windows Xp of course).

    But setting up the bluetooth and using it with my phone was a little complicated. Dont actually want to do it again if I dont have to.

    Thank You.

    well if you have the windows driver... one of the more experianced linux people might want to confirm this... you could use ndis wrapper and the windows driver i am unclear how this works because i have never needed it but someone else might be good at it
