I have a Orange (UK) Icon 225 Mobile Broadband USB Stick.

Having breifly played in Intrepid, I've seen that is has some mobile broadband support; However it seems that this support doesn't extend to the Icon 225 :(

Am I missing something, or is this just not (yet) supported hardware?

Has anyone got any workarounds?

Ta,
McManus

(P.S. I dual boot with 64bit Vista as it came with the machine, and the Icon isn't supported in 64bit Vista!! If Linux could trump Vista here, I'm sure it'd raise a smile!)
