Hi
I'd appreciate any help on loading the Sierra Wireless 595Usb modem (Telecom) on to a new linux-based Asus EEEPC 701.
The sierra website prefers Windows XP software.
Thanks
Ian

Welcome, although the form factor and connectivity method suit the eeepc, it seems its still quite a job to get the device working under Linux.

If the entire page is gobbledygook to you, then you will need to consider either going without your connectivity on the eee, or switching to Windows XP on it (and the drivers will install as easily as any other Windows PC).

Sounds like trouble I'd run into.

Although I'll probably switch the default install to Ubuntu. How do you find the screen size on your EEE? I am thiiiiiiiiis close to buying one, but I can't get past that tiny screen.

Screen is fine. I just ditched XP to try the default OS that it ships with (I got my eeepc a few weeks old with XP on it already), and on both OSes, screen is fine. Yes - its small, but thats a tradeoff....

Wow I made that previous post before I bought my EEE. Now I've got it. And Im like hell yeah. I got a EEE. Its odd being able to hold a x86 in one hand.
