Subject: How setup modem ZTE AC8700. It is no have driver for UNIX

I am very need to setup and work in FreeBSD 6.2 (for example)
 on my modem ZTE AC8700 (this is 3G modem)


Does the modem show up as a serial device? Can you give us a dump from
dmesg when you plug the modem in?

Chances are you'll be able to use it as any regular serial modem however
you may not be able to control the modem as finely as you can under
Windows (no configuring it to stay on one network, for example)... 

If you can give us at least some output though, from when you plug it
in, we may be able to help you out.
