Does anyone have any experience of using any of the new mobile broadband dongles that are offered by the likes of Vodaphone and 3?
I've tried contacting the various suppliers but get passed from pillar to post and can get no definitive answer. It looks like even if they do work they won't support you using Linux (quel surprise).
I'm not particularly keen on forking out for an 18 month contract to find it's not compatible.
I've got an Asus EeePC900 running the Xandros distro it came with.
P.S. I'm brand new to Linux and enjoying the experience so far...

The software loaded on to an XP machine gives access to this vital code, needed, I assume, to activate the dongle. Otherwise my Eee 701 and 900 models, and an XP PC, and a Mac OSX machine all work OK with the E220.
