    It will work great in LInux!
    Open Kppp
    hit the configure button
    on accounts tab create new account
    connection name: "aircard" or whatever you desire
    phone number:  *99***1#
    auth: pap/chap

    on the modems tab
    hit the "new" button
    name your modem
    *modem device:  /dev/ttyUSB2
    now click on modem tab
    uncheck wait for dial tone
    hit the modem commands button
    init1 box enter:  AT+CGDCONT=1"IP,"isp.cingular"
    hit the query modem button
    it should recognize and return info about the modem
    pwd:     CINGULAR1
    will get you connected

    however i must use firefox or Opera browser. konqueror wont connect for some reason
    *i can also get my samsung cell phone to work as an aircard modem
      by connecting it with a usb cable and choosing   /dev/ttyACM0 under modem device

    Your problem isn´t the router. The problem is on your wirless card that isn´t compatible with linux.
    But if you tell me you wirelless card in the computer maybe i can found a driver module for you.
