    I use OPTION QUALCOMM 3G CDMA. It connects to expres slot. It has been for a month since i got it and today my frustration in finaly ower.

    Try running knetworkmanager, and see if u have under "New connections" a "ttyUSB0". If you do try this tutorial: PHARscape - Vodafone 3G (UMTS) Howto

    I did not have to install any drivers or anithing. It just worked. You will probably need to configure some card parameters, so use the tutorial above.

    I connect with UMTSmon you can find here: TuxMobil: Linux Compatibility Guides for 3G (WCDMA, UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA) Laptops, Notebooks & Adapters

    I have one question for whoever did configure this card:
    My card only connects if it "thinks" that it is a local network connection??! Let me explain. If I try to connect just with my go. If I try to connect after i have already established connection to my LAN, it works. The icon that i'm connected to my LAN is still there, but i can unplug my router and it still works, therefore communication is trough modem.

    The E220 *should* work OOTB. I could not get it to work with knetworkmanager4, though, but it works with wvdial, iirc.

    Default VMC vodafone mobile connect package for e220

    Would this be of any use to you? Vodafone have their own division, that develops applications for linux users;

    Betavine - Devices

    for those using the ASUS Eee, they offer tailored software; it works our Eee 701, using an e220 modem.

    and this page

    Betavine - Operating Systems

    offers drivers for Suse, Ubuntu etc, in either 32bit or 64bit form

    is any of this any use? The software is called VMC: vodafone mobile connect, it is a package, and contains wvdial etc

    here is the page that details how to install on the ASUS Eee; I think Vodafone need a lot of commending for such an excellent guide

    My E220 (Voadfone NZ ISP) works with NetworkManager, no config needed. My authentication details are stored/handled via SIM card, but I know some users (with other ISP providers ) have to configure like a modem (with YaST, modem device is /dev/ttyUSB0) and use kinternet. I can use either method.
