Error with Mobile Broadband

Asus Eee pc 900a netbook
September 9, 2009 at 05:35:54
Specs: xandros, 2.4 ghz / IGB
hi, i've recently purchased a Eee PC 900A netbook, with a "3" network Huawei Mobile Broadband USB Stick.
When I turn it on, and insert the USB Mobile broadband adapter, the netbook doesnt recognise it.
When you create a new connection and it asks you what device you wanna use, its not listed.
Someone told me, you got to go to file manager and write some commands in.
Is there anyone who has the same problem and fixed it.

Please Help

Many thanks

You going to need Linux compatible driver. Windows and Linux implement USB slightly different and not all USB devices are compatible with each other, especially when it come to complicated devices like a Wireless adaptor.

Are you sure this USB device was designed to be used with Linux?

Do not cross post the same question in to different places. You run the risk of having both posts deleted.
