AT&T Wireless Broadband on Ubuntu Linux

The Option GT Max 3.6 Express is supported under Ubuntu 7.10. When you insert the card, it should appear as /dev/ttyUSB0, /dev/ttyUSB1, and /dev/ttyUSB2. It functions as a regular modem, so pick one of the devices and see if it works. If not, move on until one of them actually dials out.

The login information for the AT&T wireless connection is:

Phone number: *99***1#
Password: CINGULAR1

UPDATE: As of xubuntu 9.04, there's a fancy graphical interface that pops up to help you set up your card. It sets up the AT&T card with a username of WAP@CINGULARPRS.COM and an APN of WAP.CINGULAR. These needed to be changed to ISP@CINGULARGPRS and ISP.CINGULAR for my card to work. The number they use is *99#, which works fine.
