Thanks Matan. I hope the power is enough. I have the configuration
files on my laptop so I should be able to reuse those. Also, on my
laptop I use pppd to make the connection and it looks like pppd is in
/usr/sbin on my tablet. Has anyone used pppd successfully on the n810?

Now I just need to do some research to figure out how to compile
kernel modules. If anyone can point me to a good how-to that would be
great. I am going to check out the wiki now ...
