Belinos Hardware

Additional 2GB memory was purchased [081006] from Dick Smith for AUD$59 per GB (DDR2 PC5300 667 MHz) and inserted into slots 3 and 4. Process was simple and followed the instructions from the Dell service manual on line. Performance improvement was immediately noticeable.

A 300GB hard drive was added [090701] to the machine. It was salvaged from a external USB drive whose circuit board seemed to have failed—the disk itself was just fine.

A Telstra 3G Wireless Broadband USB was connected. The instructions at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1147685 (posts number 1 and 7) were followed, and the network manager application then worked with the modem. A key element was that before the process:

$ sudo lsusb
Bus 001 Device 009: ID 19d2:2000
We then run the command:
$ sudo /usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch -W -c /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf
$ sudo lsusb
Bus 001 Device 009: ID 19d2:0031

That is, the :2000 became :0031.
