Thread: Driver for Clear Wimax USB Modem ?

  1. #1

    Default Driver for Clear Wimax USB Modem ?

    I just got Clear mobile Wimax.

    It uses a Motorola USB stick modem that comes with a Windows driver.

    I didn't see a Linux driver and was wondering if I could expect to see one for openSuse moblin for netbooks?

    I some how doubt openSUSE moblin will have. From a quick google I found this ClearWire WiMAX Drivers For MAC, Coming In August., Linux A Little Later! | VOIP IP Telephony, now there is mention of them possibly releasing the source code. I found this which seems quite detailed [PLUG] Mobile broadband experiences? and a little detailed but how relevant it is I can't say.

    But there is definitely intel wimax drivers out there, so from my crude understanding it may be down to the dongle.
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.
