Fedora 17 Optus USB Broaband

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi All, I have just installed Fedora 17 on my Netbook Acer Aspire 750h and trying to get my Optus Mobile Broadband USB stick to work. I have googled this and found that many users have experienced similar problems. I invoke the Network Manager editor and setup the Mobile Broadband by adding the Optus service provider and setting the APN to preconnect instead of connect. And left everything to the default. However, when I attempt to invoke the connection I kept getting the error message saying Activation of connection failed. I read something most people says it's got to do with usb (HowTos)
