    Compact size - internal antenna with receive diversity for both CDMA 1X and EvDo (RevA and Rev0) modes.

    Plug and play - automatic drivers' installation.

    Z040 Manager software interface - for internet conection/deconection and for SMS send/receive.

    You might have luck with this tutorial:

    Linux Internet Connection - Virjacode
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".

    Hello ZeroCold,
    First I would recomend downloading the current ubuntu liveCD 9.10.

    Boot from this and plug the device in a type 'dmesg' unplug it and plug it in again type 'dmesg'.Keep doing this until you can identify the text that is associated with this device. it should be something to do with '/dev/ttyACM0'.

    Once you have that save that text.

    Then do the same with 'sudo lsusb' until you have that text. You now have the information that you need to google with.

    You can try to use netmanager in ubuntu to get the device to work(network icon in the top righthand corner). Ubuntu is very good a supporting GSM/GPRS/CMDA/3G modems. If its going to work this is your best bet.

    Once you have all of this information you can attempt to get it working with back track. Your going to need the module(driver) name and a dialup program. This is something else you will need to research.

    After having a quick look on the zapp site ( hXXp://www X zapp X ro/en/personal/terminals/modems/drivers-and-manuals/ ) I can see that there was a linux driver for the Z010 but that is now discontinued. Some questions to Zapp customer support might help you.

    In future you will want to check that ALL hardware is compatitable with Linux before you buy it.

    Best of Luck.

    It depends on your network topology . Use "ifconfig" tool to do all required operations and "iwconfig" for WiFi connection. Google for more informations and look at MAN pages of these 2 tools that I've given.
