I am using wimax usb modem in Ubuntu 9.04 properly. I am familiar with Ubuntu 10.04 and try to install the same deb file to use my wimax USB modem, but it could not install and give me the following error message:

$ sudo dpkg -i green-packet-wimax-usb_i386.iso.deb

The error (Line 9) give me some clue that the mt7118_usb_glue.ko kernel object can't insert it. So, I think this may be due to it's kernel dependencies.

Can anybody tell me how I can install this kernel object to my new Ubuntu 10.04 kernel?

what's the provider name? Qubee or Banglalion ? and also which usb modem? if u are using banglalion, (I am just guessing) see this link

It's in Bangla & for Ubuntu 11.10 and this for Ubuntu 11.04

I guess you have to install newer Ubuntu version.

Why dont you upgrade to Ubuntu 11.10

Anyways try this on the version you have

To get the driver for Wimax installed , just type the following using the Terminal:

To open Terminal: Ctrl+Alt+T

Type in the following commands:

   sudo apt-get install madwimax

Have fun!!!
