To get the driver installed for Wimax, type the following using the Terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T to open it).

Type in the following commands:

sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install madwimax

There're no publicly available drivers so far for many WiMAX USB dongles (for my case, Malaysian, Yes "Go" manufactured by Infomark, using GCT chip).

You can do usb_modeswitch (by default, it is enabled, see /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf) to convert it from storage to a GSM modem. But that's the farthest you can (I could) go.
