Hi,

I am troubleshooting an Acer Aspire ONE Pro 531 (model P531h-1791) Netbook running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.  I'm trying to get the Verizon Pantech UM175VW USB Wireless Aircard to work.  

When I put the Aircard in I get the following output:
#lsusb
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 106c:3714 Curitel Communications, Inc. 

Open in new window


Do you know what I might try to get this to work with RHEL 5?  Thank you.

In specific, I've done it on both SUSE 10.0 and OpenSUSE 11.2, and they are both 2.6 kernels.

My only concern with RHEL is that you may not have all the drivers loaded by default. You need cdc_acm and usbcore. I'm fairly sure you'll have the latter, not so sure about the former.

With Sprint, you need to load the Sprint-supplied software on a WinBlows box and complete the card setup. Not sure if you have to do the same thing with Verizon. Once you're past that, however, it's all Linux. You'll have to write the PPP chat scripts (as shown in the links above), but they're fairly straightforward (particularly if you have experience with the Hayes AT command set) and you just have to write them once.

Thanks for your responses.  I won't have the chance to test anytime soon so I figure I'll close the question and award you the points because the information you provided looks like it will either help solve it or completely solve it when I do get the chance to work on it.
