View Full Version : [ubuntu] Usb Modem driver difference in 8.10, 9.04 and 10.04

July 24th, 2010, 12:23 PM
I have been using Ubuntu since 7.04. It is really an amazing experience. I have some 8.10 machines which I use for my students and i don't want to change it right now to different version. On the other hands I want to install USB Modem (Tata Photon+) on Ubuntu 8.10. I have seen its working fine on Ubuntu 9.04 and even better with Ubuntu 10.04.

Can any one help me for how to install drivers in Ubuntu 8.10 for proper support with Tata Photon. right now my usb modem is detected as usb storage. I have also tried the usb-switchmode stuff following some articles available on net. But with no real success.

I want to know the exact difference in 8.10, 9.04 and 10.04 as far as usb modem driver installation is concerned.

Or can I configure Ubuntu 8.10 in such a way that I can use USB Modem (Tata Photon) like we do in Ubuntu 10.04.

Your help will be heartily appreciated

Thanks & Regards
