Type this in a terminal window and it will tell you what version of Linux you are using.

I don't have Xandros for the eeePC, so I can't tell you where to go to find the terminal. I did read that Ctrl+Alt+T is supposed to open the terminal, though.
Thanks for the quick response...
Sorry but now I feel really thick! The software installed is a bit like windows in that there are several tabs (internet, work, learn, play and settings) and on each tab is a selection of icons. I can't work out how to open a terminal window though. I did manage to find references to xandros and file manager mentions KDE 3.4.2 - don't know if that helps.
I would suspect that the ASUS Mobile Phone Tool does not recognize any uncommon/non-international networks, but I honestly do not know for sure if that's even the problem, so don't leave it at that. Google doesn't seem to be helping much, but I'll keep searching.
With respect to the modem there are no error messages as such, it doesn't get that far. In a windows laptop it launches an application called internet everywhere which manages the connection and lets you see how much time has been used etc. When I plug it into the eeePC it launches the ASUS Mobile Phone Tool. Only the setup button is highlighted. Clicking that gives a setup window with only APN Setup available. Next screen gives you a choice of countries - when you select UK only T-Mobile is available and for Spain no options are shown.
Hope this won't be too frustrating for you.

OK thanks for your help so far. To open it up again... Is it possible to create something like a Windows Emulator in a terminal window?
Or do you know of an Asus forum I could try?
