AT&T WiFi HotSpot Tether, please help.

I am running the latest 2.04 firmware.

I have recently been given an AT&T (NetGear) Personal HotSpot. I do not see this in the list of Supported Modems, but I am thinking that someone has done this before?

In the USB Devices, it is seen as:

Bus 001 Device 008: ID 1199:9053 Sierra Wireless, Inc.

Syslog can reportedly see the device, any suggestions on how I can implement it, and also to make it work on Power-up?

Here is the snipet from syslog:

I found the following site for supprting the Netgear device:

http://support.netgear.com/product/AirCard%2b770S%2b%2428AT%2426T%2429

Apparently the drivers for the Mac are available (how about Kali Linux?):

http://downloadcenter.netgear.com/en/Disclaimer.aspx?redirecturl=http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/aircard/SierraWirelessDrivers_2.0.6.zip

Again I see the Sierra Wireless mentioned for supportting the device.

Interesting enough, I have found the following:

# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 058f:6254 Alcor Micro Corp. USB Hub
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0bda:8187 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187 Wireless Adapter
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 058f:6366 Alcor Micro Corp. Multi Flash Reader
Bus 001 Device 008: ID 1199:9053 Sierra Wireless, Inc.

So in reading the USB Modeswitch information, I found the following diretory:

root@Pineapple:/etc/usb_modeswitch.d#

root@Pineapple:/etc/usb_modeswitch.d#ls -la 1199\:0fff
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 375 Nov 4 10:03 1199:0fff
root@Pineapple:/etc/usb_modeswitch.d#

Adding the 9053 Product code to the 1199:0fff reference file, MAY help to identify the information???

Anyone out there familiar with USB Mode Switch?
