There is a compile-it-yourself option. See here.

Download the tar and then follow METHOD C on the installation instructions.

Following your comment, I decided to try building it. It went fine. Here's what I did:

  • Download and extract the tar for the right arch.
  • cd into the new directory and then

    sudo make debprecomp
  • Assuming everything worked, there should be a .deb file sitting in the directory above the current working dir. Just double-click it and it should install.

After that just follow the rest of the installation instructions.

Are you sure that this way work on newer version of kernel like 2.6.31 ? – SjB Aug 11 '10 at 11:05

Well I just built it fine. I don't have an applicable modem so I can't test if it works. I'm using the mainline 2.6.35 so I assume it should build for things in between .31 and .35 too. – Oli Aug 11 '10 at 12:46

Also Dell provide this driver. I have used it long time ago.

Try this page or looking for similar items on dell support.
