Maybe you need a driver?

Sorry I can't give more information, and it might be out of date. But you may need to install a driver to get it working over USB.

No driver for kernel 2.6

I think the driver provided in the cd which came with the modem is for 2.4 linux kernel.Anyway Ethernet is better than usb.I am using ethernet.
