I have checked with the IRC , just wanted to officially raise a request Smile.
This is concerning users who have 3g USB cards as their primary internet connection.

We require wvdial as well as usb-modeswitch(for flipping the mode from flashdrive to a modem )
http://packages.debian.org/sid/usb-modeswitch(48KB)
http://packages.debian.org/sid/usb-mode ... data(20KB)

Please include wvdial in CD ,it seems it is present in install from DVD by default.


As 3g is getting popular and many other distros are adding support(like adding prconfigured profiles for various ISP's) i hope we could add these packages in default install or even provide it as an optional package in cd and dvd.

thanks for patient reading. keep up the good work Smile
