Title: 3G Mobile Broadband Dongle
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on February 18, 2010, 07:54:37 pm
[This is a previous posting from someone else, that I'll later respond to]

I've just bought a secondhand Acer Aspire ONE A110 and a neat little guy it is to.
I'm running this out of the box using 'Linpus Lite V.1.0.15.E' and I want to use the 3G slot for Internet access using three (3 moblie).

Do I have the right Linux OS to do this?

If so how?

If not, which one and how do I install it?

Instructions can be found here:

But you would be better off getting rid of Linpus Lite, and installing Ubuntu's Netbook Remix which can be found here:
