    Does this allow me to use my Blackberry as a tethered modem?

  3. Ratman99uk says:

    In answer to above question. There are no blackberry models listed in the hardware support list. Perhaps you could email them and request it. I would think sending / receving sms from a laptop via a blackberry has appeal as well.

    I have Huawei E1550 usb modem. How can I make it work with this software.

  5. John Lewis says:

    I don’t really understand why this software is here beyond its SMS capability. The built in support for mobile broadband in Ubuntu Jaunty is pretty good and picks up most UTMS/3G modems. It doesn’t and won’t cost a penny in future.

    Any modems that don’t work out of the box with Network Manager probably won’t work with L2N either as there are devices the kernel doesn’t know about yet and also other devices that require switching from “storage” mode.

    To get such devices to work you may have to use the generic usb_serial kernel module or usb_modeswitch (to switch from storage mode) or, in my case, write a udev rule to eject the device (which automatically takes it out of storage mode).

    After connecting the second USB-Icon225-Stick after a few days, you’ll get confronted with the message “Dear customer, please buy the full version of L2N Linux Edition”, refusing any connection…!!!

    That’s not the clean way of trying to put up a business!

    This surely sounds like a good application. My question is I need to know if this application will be able to pick up a Cell phone connection? (say a Nokia cellphone connected through serial cable)

  8. haxxor says:

    Any chance they’ll release a version that supports ubuntu karmic(9.10)?

  9. Wilson Eduardo Fonalbeo says:

    Is this tool measurably BETTER than the infamous Network Manager? Please say yes. I am soo tired of that broken piece of ill-behaved trash.
