    I have a mediatek wimax usb card which i use for internet access on a windows system. since i changed over to linux, blag distribution, i have tried to make it run on linux but cannot get the network up. blag though registers the device.
    I have a listing of some commands from my system[[lazy_dog.txt]] as attached file. Please, can anyone tell me what else i need to do that i am not doing so i can set up networking using the wimax usb card? kernel: 2.6.35.12-libre.90.fc14.i686, GNU/Linux. Blag distro.

    linuxwimax.org is down for me too (I don't think it'll ever come back).

    Reading your dump again, I really am for the usb-modeswitch; your dump says that your card is being mounted as a CD (iso9660).
    This is because sometimes devices have the drivers for windows built into the device on a flash chip, and then `flips' into the main device after driver install.


    (A quick google hints that fedora might have a precompiled version.)
