The Sierra devices will work with most linux kernels but will be much faster with kernels 2.6.22 and later. Use the "sierra" module, not the "usbserial" module.
At the time of this post, most distros don't have 2.6.22+, so you will have to build your own kernel. I get 2.5Mb/s with the 595U.

could you please elaborate? i am having a hell of a time trying to set up the sierra 595u with the eee. it doesn't seem to recognize it.

thank you!

My system runs Debian 4.0 with a custom built 2.6.23.8 kernel.
Make sure your 'sierra' kernel module is compiled and loaded.
Code:
$ lsmod | grep sierra
sierra                 13188  1
usbserial              34536  3 sierra
usbcore               137736  9 ndiswrapper,usblp,sierra,usbserial,usb_storage,usbhid,ehci_hcd,uhci_hcd

Does the kernel see your device?
Code:
$ lsusb | grep -i sierra
Bus 003 Device 004: ID 1199:0120 Sierra Wireless, Inc.

In /etc/modules, using the numbers from above (this may not be needed, not sure)
Code:
usbserial vendor=0x1199 product=0x0120

Type 'dmesg', you should see something like this in the output:
Code:
usbcore: registered new interface driver usbserial
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for generic
usbcore: registered new interface driver usbserial_generic
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial Driver core
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for Sierra USB modem (1 port)
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for Sierra USB modem (3 port)
sierra 3-2.2:1.0: Sierra USB modem (3 port) converter detected
usb 3-2.2: Sierra USB modem (3 port) converter now attached to ttyUSB0
usb 3-2.2: Sierra USB modem (3 port) converter now attached to ttyUSB1
usb 3-2.2: Sierra USB modem (3 port) converter now attached to ttyUSB2
usbcore: registered new interface driver sierra
drivers/usb/serial/sierra.c: USB Driver for Sierra Wireless USB modems: v.1.2.5b

I made a file called '/etc/ppp/peers/sprint'. The first port from dmesg is the modem: /dev/ttyUSB0
Code:
hide-password
noauth
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/sprint"
/dev/ttyUSB0
115200
defaultroute
replacedefaultroute
noipdefault
user "none"
ipparam sprint
persist
#usepeerdns
lcp-echo-failure 0

And in '/etc/network/interfaces'
Code:
auto ppp0
iface ppp0 inet ppp
provider sprint

At this point, I can type 'ifup ppp0' to connect. 'ifdown ppp0' to disconnect.
You need to elaborate too. What OS are you running and what have you tried?

i really appreciate your help.

From reading a few of these threads http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=1125, http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=4852, http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=3542, apparently the 595u and linux connection is possible. I have copied the scripts verbatim from http://samat.org/weblog/20070128-sprint … linux.html and have put them into their respective folders. I have also downloaded the sierra.ko driver from http://sources.sbrio.org/eee/sierra-3g-eee.tgz and have put that into its proper folder as well.

When I try to initiate a connection from terminal and type in "sudo pon sprint" I get "/usr/sbin/pppd: In file /etc/ppp/peers/sprint: unrecognized option '/dev/ttyUSB0'" and don't know how to troubleshoot from there. I did a "lsusb" and found line item:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 1199:0120 Sierra Wireless, Inc, so it looks like the eee does recognize it.

i am running 2.6.21.4-eeepc

The "unrecognized option /dev/ttyUSB0" means your system didn't detect the Sierra as a USB serial port. Pppd is confused because /dev/ttyUSB0 doesn't exist.
I can't vouch for the quality of this tarball, but I would do this as root:
Code:
$ tar xvf sierra-3g-eee.tgz
$ cd sierra.v.1.0.6
$ make install

What is your lsmod output after running this? Does /dev/ttyUSB0 appear? Dmesg output?

ok so i replaced my sprint script with the content from yours, modified the one from network/interfaces to the content from yours, added "usbserial vendor=0x1199 product=0x0120" to the modules script.

now when i issue ifup ppp0 sprint i get /usr/sbin/pppd: in file /etc/ppp/peers/sprint: unrecognized option '/dev;ttyUSB0'
Failed to bring up ppp0.

this is what i get from dmesg:

Sorry about that. The dollar sign is often used to represent the shell prompt. Just type what comes after it.

issuing tar vxf sierra-3g-333.tgz gives me:

tar: sierra-3g-eee.tgz: cannot open: No such file or directory

note that the sierra-3g-eee.tgz file is still on my desktop.

You need to 'cd' to the directory where you saved the tgz file. This may be as simple as typing 'cd Destop' on your system.
If that doesn't work, this command should find the file.
Code:
find . -name sierra-3g-333.tgz

No problem.
I didn't know about the EEE before today. Looks there there are some EEE specific distros. Are you using eeeXubuntu, Kubuntu, Debian Lenny or something else?
It looks like you machine is looking at the CD for packages when we need it to look at your distro's repository through the internet. Also check the distro's website for configuring your /etc/apt/sources.list.

you'll have to excuse my ignorance as i'm a total linux newb. all i know is that i configured the eee from easy mode to "advanced desktop" and that it is running xandros. will i need to convert to ubuntu or any of the other flavors you mentioned in order to get set up with the Sierra correctly?

so we need to look at the internet repository eh? could you please refresh my memory as to what exactly a repository does? at least i can get online by tethering my palm centro to the eee for now.

thanks again.
