Is this a usb adapter? I ask because I have a .deb link for the driver since it is a non free driver.

That link I posted should do just fine then. Just install the .deb. Reboot. Run ifconfig -a and see what happens.

I don't do phones tethers. Sorry. All my wireless is done through cards or usb. Download the .deb into /home

Open a terminal. type in sux to get to root.

The next command after giving your password will be

Code:
dpkg -i <the name of the .deb goes here>


maybe some other member from over seas can help with the phone tether problem.
