I received a Dell Mini Inspiron 9 from Vodafone this week with an inbuilt SIM slot for the 3g SIM card. The system came with XP on but I am an Ubuntu user so did a fresh install of Ubuntu 8.10.
The install was smooth and everything works, except the 3g modem of course!
I've been searching round various forums and blogs and I'm unable to find a definitive answer as to what the state of play is with WWAN slot, vodafone sim and Ubuntu 8.10. Has anyone got this setup to work? The system recognises the card but refuses to connect. Are we awaiting an updated driver?
