    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me how I can configure the GP edge connection using an edge modem on mac (mac book pro) ?

    I have sent GP a mail about this – but they haven’t replied. I just don’t want to buy a modem and then get stuck with it….

    I am going to use edge via usb modem in Linux (Debian). Can any one tell me what should I do.

  9. lavluda says:

    @enamul: after adding the usb modem, just install the wvdail package from your linux installation cd, then follow the instruction i wrote on this post.
