[SOLVED]Novatel Wireless XU870

Post#1 by XmnemoniC » 31 Jan 2012, 18:21

Hello Everyone,
last time I had got Novatel Wireless Merlin XU870 modem. Where can I find driver for this hardware? May by some package? Help me, because I don't have internet on my old Toshiba A200 laptop on USB/Porteus 64 :wall:

p.s. sorry for the English of course :%)

@XmnemoniC
i dont think it's necessary to compile external drivers/utils. please try with stock resources first.
run 'lsmod' and find your vendor and product ID then load the driver with following command:

Code: Select all

modprobe usbserial vendor=0x1410 product=0x1430
now you can use kppp utility as described in "Configure Dialer" section from Hamza's link:

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