Sub_title: Do I need a driver or what?
 

I hope this is the right place to ask this. I have T-mobile rocket 4G mobile data device I want to use on my puppy-driven laptop. problem is the software on the rocket only supports Win and Mac. Is there a driver or means to adapt the mac software so I can use this on the newest wary?

Thanks in advance!

No Dark, unfortunately I don't know the chipset. I read the post provided and tried it that way, but it's not the right thing. the only listing of the device is /dev/usbdev1.2. in gtkdialog, i put this in but it only asks if i want to connect using.... i say yes and it stops - nothing else happens. I haven't fouond a tty that appears associated with it and and apparently it is showing up as a usb cd drive. i'm trying to re-read the post and figure out how to get it to show up as a mobile dev. any ideas? if someone can figure it out i would greatly appreciate it.
