Quick search shows very little support for that modem. The best choice is a modem that has an ethernet lan connection. If it was provided to you I would ask to see if they would supply one with an ethernet cable connection so one can put a firewall/router between you and the modem. Or you can say you had to replace the computer and it has no working USB ports, what can you do for me to have your service work for me. Might ask what other modems work on their system and see if any support ethernet port to computer. Some people have gotten some USB modems working but thay are few and far beteeen. Many of those USB modems are considered like the dailup winmodems. They use processor power to work and require special software to work and as you know it is windows based.

If you get a modem with ethernet lan port then go get a cable/dsl firewall/router while you are at it.

Sorry for not being much help.

It is the way I would go so as to install one of those store bought firewall routers to secure my system.

Another way is to have two machines, A windows machine with a nic and the software to enable nat support from the USB modem to the nic. Then use a crossover cable to the linux machine ethernet to ethernet. Might look into software called injoy firewall for windows.
