Our Sierra wireless and Novatel EVDO (sprint pcs) cards install a USB
host controller and then a usb to serial adapter.  From what I have
heard the trunk mount units that offer USB/Serial/Eth, the usb functions
the same way and the Ethernet works through a little embedded router and
assigns DHCP.  Someone has mentioned before about having support for USB
modems so that may be a step in the right direction.  I'm not sure with
Verizon but I know with sprint, once you have the modem installed, its
just a matter of dialing with PPP #777 to have it connect.

This would be an interesting project.  I've played with the Stompbox
but I haven't had luck with the Kyocera KPC650 card.  I wonder what
drivers would need to be added to m0n0wall to fire up the card.  From
what I
have read and the cards are emulated serial ports on the USB interface.

Here's an interesting one:

I've got a client in an area of town that bandwidth forgot.  We started
to put in an ADSL connection but, after getting everything set up,
including the line and a Soekris net4801 running m0n0wall, the provider
couldn't get it working and backed out.

So, we are considering Verizon EVDO service.  Is anyone using anything
like this?  If so, what hardware (EVDO card) are you using?  Any special
configuration issues with m0n0wall?

I know I can set up a separate machine as a router from the EVDO service
to the WAN interface on the m0n0wall but, fewer moving parts is better.
 So, just wondering if anyone has a sufficiently elegant configuration
for this.
