Sprint u300 4G Wimax Card In Ubuntu

Well, this just plain doesn't work. At least in Ubuntu 10.10
I have a Sprint U300 3G/4G card - which simply doesn't work for 4G yet.

Natively it won't work even for 3G, but over here is the solution for that!

Enter this:

sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x16d8 product=0x6002

Then create a new file:

/etc/udev/rules.d/50-u300modem.rules

with the following text:
ACTION!="add", GOTO="3G_End"
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idProduct}=="6002", ATTRS{idVendor}=="16d8", RUN+="/sbin/modprobe usbserial vendor=0x16d8 product=0x6002" LABEL="3G_End"


Save it, and then:

sudo restart udev
to get it running.
