It works without the virtual box being active. Originally I had planed
to install it on a virtual windows OS and connect though that. However
once I had the vista 32bit installed the 3G started working. Same with
the vista 64bit, the 4G started working. It connects using the Clear
connection I set up, and the Sprint 598U connection that the Debian NYC
set up. When I do the Cnet speed test the speeds is usually above 500kbps.
