    You cannot. Android does not support those out of the box.

    I am trying to scavenge files used to install usb modem capability using some older Huawei dongles for the Acer 500...
    this has already been done in DJ Steves' beta 3 ROM, but I just want the usb modem patch, not the whole rom flashing...

    I have already identified most, if not all the needed files, now they need to be put in the right places, assigned the correct permissions
    and test that...

    and if it works, a batch file or a patch can be scrambled to create an automated installation...

    the problem is the library permissions, the kernel must match the library modules (well in Linux, MAC OS X is more liberal, and Android I have no idea, but I prefer to avoid compiling the capability in the kernel, because then in the next kernel version it will be lost, unless Google decides that it be implemented, which I strongly doubt as this will mean stepping on the toes of both manufacturers and Mobile phone providers)...

    Unless you bought an Archos and they have their own 3g dongle, lol.

    Already solved the 3g problem with a wifi hotspot cradle which can house a large number of usb modems... they regularly add new ones with firmware revs.

    but this will be a little challenge, and maybe an opportunity to learn something

    Toshiba are very uncool to close this, but they bow to money like all corps. ...
