    Has anyone here used the Huawei E1691 USB G3 Data Stick successfully with the Shibby Build?
    Which Shibby Build, exactly?

    I'd like to try this as an emergency backup for a very flaky DSL line.

    I haven't found any mention of this USB 3G modem as working with Tomato. Is it safe to assume it will?

    AFAIK there's no definitive list of supported modems, you really just have to try. Have a look at this thread and you'll find some useful stuff. As for builds, 3G modem support is incorporated in all Shibby's builds if I remember correctly, so pick whichever suits you. I would recommend the last version 083, not the latest 085, as Shibby said 3G support got broken in that one.
