    Help me with the Internet connection


    I want to connect to the Internet through a mobile phone. My mobile phone is connected to an USB infrared device. I've just installed Linux and I don't know how to use it! So, someone can help me with the settings for a mobile phone that is connected to an infrared device? And if you don't know the settings for a mobile phone modem just give me the general settings for a connection. By the way: Does Linux support de infrared device?

    Here's the settings for initializate the mobile phone modem:

    Acces Point Name (APN) = internet
    Dialing number: *99***1#
    Extra initialization command: at+cgdcont=1,"ip","internet"

    I founded this settings in Windows, and I really like to connect to the Internet using Linux.

    Thanks in advance!
