Please please please help.
I am a complete newcomer to Linux operating systems and decided to install and try one as I would someday like to run my own Linux server for the fun of it. I did some research and ended up with the Fedora distro as I liked the Gnome shell. I have figured out some basic commands in terminal (nothing like the old DOS I used to work in) but I am completely lost when trying to get my Telstra 4G wireless broadband card working on Fedora 17.
Could someone please point me in the right direction. I have spent almost 6 hours last night searching forums and trying to follow the technical speak but to no avail. Could someone please walk me through it step by step as I would rather not go back to windows. I have fallen in love with Linux and wish the modem worked.
It is a Sierra wireless modem. It does not have the model number on the modem but I found it on the sierra website. It is called a Sierra wireless Aircard 320U.
I have tried following the direction on the Sierra website but i think I am missing something as commands they give me keep comming back with "command not found" or something.
Please Please help or at least point me in the right direction.

OK so after much searching and reading of blogs I managed to get the modem working and I am connected to the internet....WOOHOO.
My next issue is forcing the card into 4G mode. It connects in 3G and the internet works fine but I paid for a 4G modem and plan with my service provider and would love the speed of the 4G modem.
Could anyone please help me with forcing the Sierra Wireless 320U into 4G mode.
I am a completed noob at linux so please be patient with me.
I have tried AT commands but they dont work in my terminal for some reason. Am I doing something wrong??
