how to install micromax mmx310 3G usb modem for internet


hello guys
i need help regarding the installation of a 3g modem and it also has a built-in slot which reads micro sd cards.
the company micromax has not replied even after a week for my request for linux drivers so i think that the dont have them.
I have setup my network but i dont know if its working or not as i cannot connect to the internet via my usb device.
i have done a dual boot of backtrack 4 final and windows xp sp2(bt4 installed after). my laptop is compaq presario v6307.
i tried installing the windows drivers of the device in backtrack, they were installed and a icon was formed on my desktop in bt4 but when i connect the device the aplication tells "no device" i guess its not reading it right?
so tell me wat to do now.

Boot linux, and run lsusb and it gives you an ID number for each device, e.g.
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 1241:1166 Belkin MI-2150 Trust Mouse

google for the ID number; in the example above that's 1241:1166
See what you can find.
