    ZTE Broadband Modem On Fedora 11


    Hello To Everybody!

    A friend gave me a ZTE Broadband (USB Wireless) that works fairly well in my XP partition. However, I desire that I may be able to use it in my Fedora 11 partition since this is where I do my work most of the time. Although the company (service provider) claims that this can't be used in a Linux, I tend to disagree since I know that if Windows can, Linux can too .

    Anyway, I would like to request again for some help on how to set-up this modem in my Fedora 11 partition. If ever, I would also like to ask for instructions on what particular data do I have to provide and commands I should run in the terminal so as to get the necessary information.

    Thanks in advance and I look forward to this new learning experience!

    Cheerio!!!

    This is the info on your modem. The ID string 19d2:0001 is probably the most useful bit if you're googling for solutions.

    I can't find anything Fedora specific, but these guides may help point you in the right direction.
