I have a jailbroken iPad wifi (non 3G) and I've recently bought the camera connection kit which has a USB port (which supposedly detects/connects to even non-camera devices like USB keyboards, USB flash drives, etc).

I was wondering if it would be possible to attach a 3G USB modem/data card and make the Internet work without wifi? The 3G data card otherwise requires a bare-minimum wvdial from a normal Linux terminal.

So,
1. Can I get/install the wvdial .deb package on my jail broken iPad?
2. If I can get the package, will this work (wvdial detecting and using the USB modem and connecting through it?), or is it too far out?

Thanks for your help and suggestions.
 
Thanks for your reply Mike.

On a normal Linux terminal, no drivers are required. You just set wvdial config as 'analog modem' and point it to /dev/ttyUSB0 or something like that. I got this info from a link, which I can't post right now because I haven't posted 3 times on the forum yet.

That's what got me thinking that if I can get the wvdial package, it would work. I know this is a bit far out, but maybe possible?

yeah because it already has basic universal analog modem drivers.
