UK qstn, 901,wifi Virgin

Hi

I recently got an ASUS EEE PC 901 and I'm told that if I amend settings I can get it to link to a Virgin mobile wifi dongle.

Has anyone changed theirs and can tell me which settings to change?

 many thanks

You should upgrade to Ubuntu 9.10. All the popular Mobile Broadband companies such as Virgin are pre-configured in the newest version of Ubuntu.

In fact, I was able to tether my cellphone using Ubuntu as a mobile broadband device without requiring any extra work other than changing the DNS setting to opendns.com.

Virgin Mobile is a global company so we're not exactly sure about whether you need to fine-tune any settings. There's some info about Virgin Mobile dongles in ubuntu,http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=8630531
