    RE telstra Bigpond wifi internet connection


    Hi
    I am very new to linux. I have a EEEPC with linux up. I believe it is Xavier/Debian distrubution. I would like to use my usb wireless modem. The dongle has a hardwired setup routine that will set up on any windows XP up but my searches so far suggest that it will not work with linuxs.

    My question:1 Is there a relatively easy way to aquire the appropriate drivers that would allow me to use the wifi broadband from linux.

    2> Can anyone suggest a portable wifi broadband usb plug in that would do the job.

    Hope someone can help

    Thanks

    Brian from Tasmania
