I done that and now recognises the usb modem stick , as mobile
broadband tab now shows,
I clicked onto it and it was blank and I presume that I click add and
enter details either
about gsm or hspd(ithinkg) as in win xp pro sp3 dual boot at moment. I
am not sure what details
I put in, so when in k10.10mm I will do a screen copy of this window
and sen to you OK
