    Question Mobile Broadband on HP EliteBook 6930p

    Hey guys,

    I have an HP EliteBook 6930p (Laptop). I am trying to get my mobile broadband working. It is an inbuild device, so I am not using a USB or PCMCIA Card. I can't find any module using "ifconfig" or "iwconfig". Using "lspci" I get the following output:
    Code:
    #bt4@root:lsusb -s 001:003 -v

    I've searched the net for this issue but as I don't have any connection to the internet to use synaptic. How can I get the module working? From then on using KPPP or wvdial is quite easy.


    Thanks for your respond in advance!

    Use manual pppd (search the net) and make sure you have debug set (this will make sense once you find information on linux pppd).

    Also, you're not going to see any other interface other than ppp0 or similar (once the cnenction has been established).

    Thanks for your reply, you are right that I would not be able to find any interface unless I am not connected to the Internet.

    But the issue is that the driver does not seem to be installed. I can not find any modems! I used a lot of howtos but non of them worked for me

    So if any of you guys could give me some advice on how to get my modem to work, I would be very happy.

    Thanks
