On kppp there are about 9 USB modem presettings you can choose from. I don't know which one (if any) you are setup to use. Can you post back here the results of configure/device/modem device. Then once you are sure you have that configured properly (and it may be a case of pure trial and error), go to the next tab (modem) and click query modem which is a good diagnostic. Once you have this info, then post back.
