View Full Version : [ubuntu] USB WiMax device in Ubuntu 10.10

December 10th, 2010, 02:39 PM

I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed on my netbook (dell mini 10v). I have WiMax USB device (Greenpacket, UH350), which only works in Windows. (As far as I know).

I have two questions here.

1. Is it possible to make this device work in Ubuntu?

2. Can I install vitualbox in ubuntu, run windows xp in it, install drivers for this device in windows xp and share internet between windows xp and ubuntu? If possible, then how to do this?

Currently I am using this device to use internet through virtual machine method.

I haven't found yet any drivers for this device in linux.

As soon as I find drivers for this device in linux, I will post the method.
