Right after my Asus eee was handed to me, the first thing I did was configure 3G connection in it with my Sony Ericsson K608i. And I succeeded.
My SE K608i phone was not detected automatically at the first time. So I headed right away to myasuseee.com where I read the step by step process to make Asus eee detect the phone as a modem.
The steps were so easy to follow. I followed the GUI way. It’s the best. i also tried the console steps and it worked as well.
Steps in setting up 3G connection on Asus eee PC with SE K608i phone.
Update – The GUI Way
Wilson Co has pointed me to this post on Eeeuser that basically details how you can cheat your Eee into using a â€œdialupâ€ account as a 3G connection. Note that Xandros will auto-detect the KU250 as a dialup modem and not a 3G / HSDPA modem. Basically, you just have to:
1. Create a dialup profile using your 3G phone as the dialup modem. Usually the KU250 or other 3G- or GPRS-enabled phones wonâ€™t appear under the 3G/HSDPA modem list, even when plugged in. They will be detected as dialup modems, though.
2. Edit /etc/ppp/peers/dialup1 such that the last few lines appear as follows:
3. Edit /etc/chatscripts/dialup1 such that it looks like this:
ABORT “NO CARRIER”
ABORT “NO DIALTONE”
ABORT “NO DIAL TONE”
And then try to connect using that particular dialup profile. This is essentially the GUI way of doing the above-mentioned steps, but this time without having to dialup using wvdial, nor installing that tool itself.

The experience is perfect. I can connect from anywhere I go as long as there is 3G/GPRS signal.
