I have EEE PC 900. It is the 20GB model and it had Linux on it. I got fed up with Linux and put Xp on it instead. I use a Huawei E220 HSDPA mobile broadband usb modem from 3. It works fine, and is surprisingly fast. I have been told that this only works on a XP/Mac OS and not Linux. However .. all is not lost, as some bright spark has apparently got around the problem here ...

Good luck

There's no reason why it shouldn't. If you're running Linux do some research before-hand to see if you can have the adapter running perfectly under 'nix.

Thanks for that :thumbsup:

If I wanted to get a 3 modem working on an EEE / linux, as easily as possible. Is the Huawei E169G the best modem to get (by best I mean the easiest to get working)
Thanks

Cheers :thumbsup:

I'm using a 3 Huawei E220 modem on a 4Gb EEE running Linux, and it works fine out of the box.

Guy in the shop (Carphone Warehouse) said that 3 have the best speed / coverage.
