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
login ID: IFP@CINGULAR.GPRS.COM
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.
