    Bigpond wireless modem


    Hi, has anyone had any success getting the Bigpond Maxon BP3 modem to work in PCLinux or any Linux for that matter. It's odd that Bigpond have a vast file repository of Linux software but don't seem to support it with drivers etc.
    Cheers,
    Alan.

    Post the output of this command:
    Code:
    /sbin/lsusb
    Also, for a list of modules that are loading on your system, post the output of this command:
    Code:
