Thanks for the pointer. I do Spanish and so I can read the page. :-)
Your modem is as well Huawei E220? I have had one borrowed by Vodafone
and it worked well on my FreeBSD laptop too; but I was asked to return
it :-(

do you have an idea where to buy one in EU without a contract of UMTS? I have
an UMTS SIM but only a PCMCIA card :-(

is there any way to use something like an USB-splitter to connect the
USB of the FR to the modem and at the same time to a laptop?
