Tether using Linux?

Okay... so after both Vista and XP have puked on me, I've gone to Ubuntu 8.04

It shocks me that it fully supports my laptop out of the box (Toshiba Satellite X205) - even BLUETOOTH... (mind you, Toshiba's Bluetooth stack never worked even on Vista, which was its native OS)

But here's the deal. I *NEED* to be able to tether when I'm at work.

How can I make this happen?

I downloaded USB Modem but the manual is total crap and I have no idea how to set it up... and I don't know how to use Internet Sharing for BT PAN...

Can anyone help me? Please?

Re: Tether using Linux?

nevermind. SynCE with Ubuntu 8.04 is an EXTREMELY easy way to tether! Once you install the drivers, Ubuntu connects via Internet Sharing and its FAST!

ROCK ON!

Re: Tether using Linux?

Check this out... fastest speed test I've ever gotten







Check out that ping!

And I'm sorry but I've never seen ANYONE upload that fast on Rev A!

Re: Tether using Linux?

Yeah its insane.

Dude I'm downloading a 151MB MP3 from a friend right now at a SUSTAINED 100KB/sec.

Keep in mind that the towers out here are only on a 1.5Mbps pipe right now... We're kinda jipped here.

Also, that speed test was on a Dallas server... which, while its near my HA... I'm in Denver, CO.

Its crazy... because everything that was broken on my laptop before works out of the box on this. Anyone that owns an X205 can tell you how incompatible they are with like everything... but Ubuntu grabbed my wireless and my bluetooth out of the box, sound works, my HDMI out works (now that I've enabled the nVidia drivers)... 8.04 is by far the best distro I've ever used. And oh my lord is it fast!

Re: Tether using Linux?

Thanks, I'd been waiting for a guinne pig to report , I gave up on linux a few years ago, b/c I don't want to be a programmer. I have 2 older portege's with the option for built in bt, but never wanted to mess with Toshiba's stack. Now I will definitely set one up for dual boot.

as a side note i'm looking into setting up a trixbox, can you dial a regular # from the laptop?

Re: Tether using Linux?

I've not tried. Honestly, it was as simple as installing SynCE and connecting the device... it automatically connected after that.

http://www.synce.org/moin/SynceWithUbuntu

Follow it to the point where it tell you to run "synce-pls" and after you run that, stop there.

I have a feeling if you follow the rest, you'll break tethering. Then once you connect the device, you'll see a plug with an exclamation point... but if you look at the phone, it looks like it thinks its connected to ActiveSync. Then disconnect it, start internet sharing on USB, then plug it back in... you'll see it get a connection to the device then the plug with the exclamation point will come back... but you'll be able to browse completely fine.

BTW... 19 minutes for 151.05MB = 7.95MB/min = 132.5KB/sec = 1056kbps!!!... and I was browsing at the same time.


EDIT: For the non-believers (because I know there will be), here's a testmy.net that not only confirms I'm using linux but confirms that I'm getting sustained download speeds (its a 12MB test file for download, 3MB for upload)

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Sorry for diggin up an old thread, but I'm trying to get this to work on ubuntu as well. I get the exclamation point like you said, but when I dsiconnect the device, start internet sharing, and reconnect the device, I don't get the exclamation point. It doesn't look like it recognizes the device when I plug it back in and Internet Sharing is enabled. When I disable Internet Sharing, it again recognizes the device and gives me the exlamation point.

Any other pointers? I wonder if it has to do with the new wm6.1 rom. Running a Sprint Touch.
