Related to this question, I need to know if the specific combination of Ubuntu 9.10 + the Huawei E170 (HSDPA broadband modem USB stick) will work? Bonus points for a link to a webpage that decsribes exactly how it is done!
Specifically, I'm in Austria and the telco is A1, but I hope that the setup would be the same regardless of location/provider. Also, I'm looking for a solution where the user (my wife!!) doesn't need to enter any
sudo commands to get this working. Can I dream of true plug-and-play?
Your input is much appreciated! If I can get confirmation that it's supported, then I'd switch to Ubuntu Netbook Remix, because I'm already running Ubuntu on the main pc at home and I'd like to keep things simple.
