USB Modem - HUAWEI E220

Forums: 

Hi,

Please help, I am really struggling.

A friend left me an Aspire One Netbook that I believe uses the Linux Lintus OS?

I am trying to use a HUAWEI E220 USB Modem on the '3' network. It appears as a file but when I try to execute it nothing happens.

I thought it would be just plug and use.

I would be grateful if anyone can tell me (step by step) please how to connect to the Internet using the USB Modem.

Many Thanks

Carm
