Anybody around here have some tips/pointers on using an aircard natively in linux? By aircard, I mean one of those neat little devices that your local/national cellphone carrier offers for laptop connectivity. ( AT&T, T Mobile, or etc)
I did a little bit of google searching, found some interesting things.
I have quite a bit of experience with the AirCards and Linux. My other company owns just under a dozen of them. The Sierra AirCards generally are great with Linux but not immediate "out of the box" support. However, there is CDMA/GSM support in NetworkManager coming. There is also a GUI for generating the PPP scripts for manual connection, but it escapes my mind off hand.
I can try to be more detailed in my answers later.
