I have OpenSUSE 11 on a MSI Wind. The problem I’m having is with getting an AT&T USB Connect 881 modem working with it.
When I go into YAST and select Hardware I look under USB and see AirCard (/dev/ttyUSB0) listed. When I expand that section it says:
Class (spec): Serial Controller
Class: Communication Controller
Device identifier: 223318
Device Name: /dev/ttyUSB0
Under Drivers it has:
modules (under modules it says modprobe sierra)
Hwcfg Bus: usb
Kernel Driver: sierra
Model: Sierra Wireless AirCard
Old Unique Key: AEDV.D(gvxkgM099
Parent Unique ID: pBe4.gkSaZmjGyhD
Sysfs ID: /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.1/usb2/2-1/2-1:1:0
Sysfs ID: 2-1:1.0
Unique Key: FKGF.zu_WTPzVMZ6
Vendor Identifier: 201113
Vendor: Sierra Wireless, Inc.
I apologize if I gave more information that necessary but I’m a newbie in general to Linux.
I had the idea that a driver is not included for this AirCard with OpenSUSE but if I’m reading correct it appears there is a driver already in OpenSUSE. Is that correct?
The question though is: How do I actually use this AirCard and connect? I have the KDE desktop and currently use KNetwork Manager to connect using the WiFi connection on this computer. Can i set up the AirCard with KNetworkManager and if so, how do I? Or is there another way I need to connect? Thank you for your help
