Mobile Broadband Assistant Wizard
Though the NetworkManager applet does a good job of configuring Mobile Broadband connections, the steps to have the hardware itself useful are daunting. I propose that we have a wizard that assists in that process, leaving the job of connecting to NetworkManager.
- Upon launch, it checks hardware to know what is needed
- Checks drivers to make sure the hardware can be used.
- If good, then proceed.
- If bad, then search for driver in enabled repos and then online.
- Asks about service area, provider/carrier, and GSM vs CDMA if necessary.
- Checks information against a table/database and downloads appropriate *.exe from provider, or points the user to the appropriate webpage.
- Automatically extracts appropriate firmware from *.exe and places in correct firmware directory.
- Launches Gnome Connection Manager (KDE does not work properly yet for Mobile Broadband) and allows connection to be made. If possible embed module in Wizard for aesthetics.
