USB port connection problem

Recently, when I try to connect to the internet using my broadband device plugged into either of the two usb port's in the back of my Toshiba Satellite laptop it can't make the connection.
However, if I plug in my wireless mouse into either of these two ports it works. What's up with these ports? Why do they work for the mouse and not the broadband device?

USB broadband, and USB mouse?

Sure.
Enough USB ports for this? There are 3 USB ports.

My recommendation is No, sir, or ma'am.
Hate to rain on a parade, but kids expect the laptop to perform gaming on top level, connect to the internet at lightning speed, and pour a soft drink at the same time.

(Kinda of what we adults expect)

She'll be bored with this laptop in a day.

I need usb driver in linux for my mobile samsung sgh x820


hi...

many mobile phone companies dont provide drivers for linux.

But there is a software i would personaly recommend to you. Actually its not a software, its a shell script.
Name of software is "Sakis3g". It can connect to mobile phones and other mobile devices which can be detected by linux kernel. You can use IR, Bluetooth, even USB cable to connect to your device.

You can use this software for the following

connect to mobile devices by IR, bluetooth, USB Cable
  1. Send and receive files between computer and device

  2. Access Internet from Device by Dial Up Networking

  3. Browse files on Mobile device

  4. Mount the mobile device on a user specified mount point or communication port.
    usually it mounts connected mobile device to /dev/rfcomm0. Through this port, you can communicate with the device .
Connect to USB Modem (Like Reliance DataConnect, TATA Photon, IDEA Netsetter etc.)


  1. ability to connect to any locked/unlocked USB internet Modems (Zero Devices)

  2. fully automated connection setup. No manual input is needed except to specify connection name.






You can find more details and download Sakis3g from this address
http://www.linuxconfig.org/mobile-broadband-connection-and-sakis3g





hope this will help you to solve your issue.

Connecting a wireless router to Tiscalli broadband connection


  1. USB modem is connecting a PC USB port with a DSL phone line: CANNOT be connected to a ROUTER LAN (ethernet NOT USB port).
  2. Wireless ROUTER is NOT a modem and it CANNOT connect the Internet (or WAN) LAN port to any "phone line"
  3. Connect the Router Internet (WAN) port to Modem (you need a LAN MODEM = a modem with a LAN/ETHERNET port)
  4. Be sure your internet is running before strting ROUTER configuration with Router Company CD

You say "your Ethernet Port" (= LAN port)
