Thanks I finally got that all working great. I would also like to set up my palm treo 755p with my thinkpad as a usb modem. The account is set up with my provider, but my laptop does not see the modem. I would also still like to be able to switch between my ethernet interface, and wifi card (and select networks) in the easiest way possible. Does anybody have experience with all this? There seems to be many packages that deal with networking. ie. networkmanager, wifimanager, wifiradar, kwifimanager... Does anybody have any clear easy advice as to what packages to use, packages to NOT use, how to set configurations? Thanks again! Rick -- gentoo-laptop@g.o mailing list
