Is this the same Sierra card that is provided by Reliance too? I did not
know it was a Wi-Fi network card. In one IBM laptop that has an RIL
card, I tried out the Ubuntu 5.10 live CD. It created an active network
icon in the task bar and it had already sent and received about 300
kbytes. We got scared that it might jeapordise his security so we
rebooted back to his installed OS. However, the device was called 'lo'
whatever that means. So I guess linux must be supporting this card.
There is no wireless lan in his vicinity so that device must have been
that card. Only support required would be the ppp software.
Try out the Ubuntu 5.10 live CD (December issue of LFY) and try setting
up your card on that.
