I am a new user of Linux Mint and Ubuntu. After using so many days I tried to settle broadband connection in Linux. But still I am in dark about the proper configuration of WiMAX internet connection. I am in big trouble now a days because its a new place and there is no broadband service provider here. So anybody please help me to configure my WiMAX internet connection in Linux operating system.
How to configure WiMax internet connection in Linux operating system
WiMAX connections mostly run with the default network configuration in Local Area Connection.
If your WiMAX CPE is a device other than USB then you just need to connect it via LAN cable with your system. Your system's LAN card must be set to automatically obtain IP from DHCP, This way the built-in DHCP server in your WiMAX CPE will assign you a Local network IP and you will be able to connect to internet.
If your WiMAX CPE is a USB device then you need to install it's driver and software which you can find from the website of device manufacturer. Manufacture name and model number can be found somewhere on the USB device. Afterwards, you will need to set your LAN settings to automatically obtain IP from DHCP.
Hope it helps.
