    Default How to get BackTrack 4 Beta connected to Optus 3G Wireless Network?

    Hi everyone,

    I've now downloaded and installed BackTrack 4 Beta onto a DVD in order to fiddle around with it before I install it on a USB Flash Drive. However, I am not quite sure how to connect BT 4 to the Optus 3G Network.

    On my Windows box, it is simply a matter of firing up the Optus Wireless Network software and hitting connect. The setup procedure on BackTrack 4 (and Ubuntu) is significantly more strenuous.

    Any help in enabling Backtrack 4 Beta to connect to the Optus 3G network will be immensely appreciated!

    Cheers,

    Professor 0110

    Try searching Google for

    "Optus 3G Network Linux"

    The first link looks pretty relevant to me.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    I had no issues with bt automagically recognizing my 3g modem and using it. Just /etc/init.d/networking start, then go to your networkmanager, right-click, see your modem, click on it, connect. It's that easy. At least with most 3g modems (USB) it is so.
