I didn't get a chance to test the modem in the M300, but it should work with the smartlink module. If that doesn't work it will almost certainly work with the Linuxant module.


No issues at all with the Toshiba Portege M300 under Linux. Installation went well and the M300 handles Linux properly.

Check cricket is becoming dull as well as prosaic. Some cement proposals in order to revamp the actual test cricket happen to be suggested through former Indian native cricket participant Ravi Sasthri.
