Here is a Puppy 4.0 pet that provides ppp + chat connection and configuration files for any (I think) GPRS Internet connection. GPRS is wireless Internet over GSM cell telephone.

This package also provides a GUI modem setup (with hardware probing for attached serial GPRS modems) and adds "PGPRS-connect" and "PGPRS-setup" entries to the "network" Puppy menu.

To use this, you must have succeeded in making your GPRS modem visible to Puppy as a serial modem device, probably associated with one of the following device files:

/dev/ttyS0 ( for serial port, COM1 in Windows)
/dev/ircomm0 (for IrDA)
/dev/ttyUB0 (for Bluetooth, Bluez with rfcomm running)
/dev/ttyUSB0 # for USB

Note that the upcoming Puppy 4.1 will probably include this GPRS setup/connection functionality.

Thanks

Sorry to delay my reply.

I think so, although I only have personal experience with GPRS, and positive feedback for EDGE.

I believe that any wireless Internet modem that is recognized by the Linux OS as a serial device will work with the PGPRS package. If your modem uses USB connection, you will almost certainly need special drivers.

Thanks for your response, unfortunately my modem uses a USB connection and I don't have an idea of where to get the special driver it would need.
