View Full Version : [ubuntu] O2 wireless modem

September 22nd, 2009, 08:08 PM
I have used the following instructions, provided by faustcoder, from the thread entitled "How-to Sierra Wireless Compass 885" to set up my O2 modem but without success.

"I have a far simpler way of getting it to work!!!!
In NetworkManager right click and edit connections, then add *99***1# to number. REMOVE the username and APN, leave password alone. You should be able to connect!!!! If not please let me know and I'll provide more info!"

In the setup I have "connect automatically" checked but when I insert the modem a connection is not established. Also, when I click the Network Manager icon the O2 connection is not presented as an option to connect to.

I am using Jaunty on an Asus Eee PC.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Best regards,
