How to Use Tata Photon on Chromebooks

How can you connect the Tata Photon mobile internet dongle on Chromebooks? After I bought my new Chromebook, I realized it is not possible to install any software, unlike Windows. The Tata Photon dongle requires a small software to be installed, so it can allow the laptop to connect with mobile internet facility.

    What a useful article. I have disabled comments on all my sites because of the span comments – hundreds per week – all containing links.
    Now I know that I can fix the problem via WordPress’s own settings I can get some interactions going.
    Thanks for the advice.

    I spent more than 4 hours googling on this, but nothing worked. You are right this is a magic line of code. I entered it and voila, I was able to connect the Tata Photon after a reboot.

    Thanks man. You were a life saver for me today.
