AT&T says no to linux

  • I've run into this several times, both with Linux and Mac OSX. You can call support and they can enable your modem over the phone. I know it's a pain, but there is a way to do it without Windows.

    The real issue I have with the Windows install is all the extra crapware you have to install to do the activation. I was VERY happy that my linux system has a VirtualBox XP installation. I took a snapshot, installed all the garbage they require before activating the modem, activated it, and blew away that snapshot.
