Installing PCMCIA Wireless modem problem

Last updated: 25 October 2006

I have installed the ubuntu on my laptop for its performance http://desaiyn.tripod.com/laptop/ubuntu_on_thinkpad_R52.html

 

I am unable to access the internet from this laptop as internal modem is not working the PCMCIA CDMA wireless card with me is not supported by Linux. Linux detects the card when inserted but while configuring the modem it hangs or give the message that modem is in use. Details of PCMCIA card is

800MHz CDMA 1X

Model: MC315

PCMCIA TYPE-II

Wireless Modem
