I'm using Mandriva 2009 (spring). I have a duel boot Asus laptop-F50Sseries. With Vista and Mandriva on it. To go on line I'm using A US.Celluar UM175 mobile broadband usb modem. Vista uses it fine . Mandriva sees it as
Pantech usb modem|communications|abstract(modem)
at_commands (V.25ter)
Vender ID 0X106C
Device ID 0X3714
Misc module:cdc_acm

I have tried passwords and other things. Nope doesn't want to do anything but sit and stare at me. Can you help me get on line with Linux?

Thanks
