I have seen quite a few posts on this issue but no solutions I could find. Does anyone know of a way to get a connection using Clear. I really don't want to give up using ubuntu but it seems like I have to. Any help is appreciated.
As a proud user of Archlinux, I'm able to connect via Clear's USB WiMAX devices. I believe this should work on Ubuntu as well though!
So try the following:
Make sure the correct module(s) are loaded for the OS to recognize the USB device. (In my case, I only need the usbnet module)
Check if the device is being recognized by your system
Bring up the USB network device and request a dynamic IP for system with net-tools package.
Or use this command if you use the newer ip-tools package.
Change settings on WiMAX USB device by navigating to your WiMAX configuration page in a web browser.
Hopefully at this point you DHCP request will come back with another address, such as
That's it. Now go play on YouTube.
As far as I can tell, nobody has been able to get the Clear USB sticks to work with Linux yet.
To do this, you will want to use a "Clear Hub." These devices use standard Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections and so are not dependent on Windows.
