Default Question about Verizon Wireless Broadband device - 03-05-2009, 07:39 PM

Is there a way to get the Verizon Pantech UM150 USB EVDO modem to work in Linux (either Ubuntu Linux or Xandros Linux)? I am attempting to use the UM150 on a Dell Inspiron Mini 9.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

I've used the modem under OS X (using Verizon's VZAccess Manager) but haven't tried it under Ubuntu yet so I don't know what it would take.

Try posting in the Unix/Linux forum http://mydellmini.com/forum/unix-linux-forums-f16.html
or in the 3G Mobile Broadband Forum http://mydellmini.com/forum/3g-mobil...ssion-f54.html

Also, it seems like others have been able to get it working. see if any of these help out:

(the last link is someone specifically talking about getting it working on a mini9)

Good luck!


Dell Mini 9 - Cherry Red. 2GB RAM, 64GB RunCore, BlueTooth, 10.6.7 (working on getting 10.6.8 'working' )
