    accessing internet in Nokia Mobile through usb connectivity


    Dear all,

    I'm trying to connect my laptop (with fedora 11) to access internet from Nokia Mobile. I tried with following tools and couldn't get success in any of them:

    * wvdial
    * pppd
    * gnokii/xgnokii
    * nokinux

    The basic problem was, the mobile is not at all detected as a modem. But on windows it works smoothly with Nokia PC Suite.

    So anybody is successful to get access to internet from mobile? If so, can share their success story?

    Thanks

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Don't know about FC11, but Ubuntu (9.04 and later) handles just about any USB wireless modem. My 9.04 laptop worked without configuration with my Sprint CDMA USB modem, as well as other devices such as my Nexus One in tethered mode. I plugged them in, and they just worked...
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
