Asus EE and Mobille internet

I am sure I read a post in which the FE not only said he had an Asus but also said he used it remotely to contact the internet, emails etc. It runs a form of Linux and I do not think the mobile companies have dongles which work with this. So how did he do it, please.

You do it by going to a place where they have open wi-fi access. Many internet cafes do - Starbucks does (at least in the States) - and I'm sure many other places do now in the UK.

The eeePC has wi-fi built in. My granddaughter has one, with a wireless access point in their home.

Thanks. It is fine at home where we have wi-fi access on our network and also wherever there is another wi-fi access. What I was interested in was using the mobile network to access the internet etc which you can do with any lappy that runs Windows - buying a dongle from a number of mobile telephone operators like Vodaphone and T-mobile.

Hi Shellship, I use the EeePC with a 3G dongle, the EeePC OS has drivers built in for the Hauwei E220 dongle, I think most mobile operators use this dongle. More information can be found on the EeePC forums, click here or the wiki click here.

Many thanks. Sounds complicated but will post as resolved.
