USB 3G-dongle for kiosk

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

hi samokko,

unfortunately this wont be easy:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/USB_3G_Modem
or
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wvdial
and requires modifications on the kernel level (compiling ppp protocol into it).

i would give up unless you are company which could buy a kiosk custom build:

thanks.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
