Qualcomm Gobi Wizard, making mobile broadband simple.

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Rejected Information

Description

My HP un2400 Gobi device is supported and should work. Whether it is due to USB mode switching or that the gobi_loader does not work correctly I do not know. There should be a simple wizard like that which ships under Windows (VZW connection manager) to allow me and other users in the same situation to easily make us of the Mobile Broadband we pay for. This is the final thing keeping me from wiping Windows off my netbook entirely.

User benefit:

Use of Mobile Broadband is not likely to decline, but rather increase with the proliferation of affordable increasingly powerful Netbooks.

The problem is given mainly by a denial of Qualcomm to make the firmware available separately. Unfortunately they have a lot of market and so one cannot easily choose (otherwise Huawei would be a better alternative). But a wizard could help. Still, the procedure is not "very difficult", with some skills. I got mine working after 1 h of Google, surf and then the installation took 10 minutes. But a newbie or a non skilled user would be lost. Agreed upon. However I do blame Qualcomm for this. Not openSUSE.
