You can start first by writing clearly, and providing meaningful information. Saying "help me to configure modem" isn't helpful. What kind of modem? What interface on the modem?

And what have you done/tried so far?

Go into terminal and as root type 'lspci' without the quote marks and tell us the name and model of your modem.

Any modem you have, weather a dial -up or an ADSL, you can configure it by typing

$ sudo pppoeconf

in the terminal. You will get a dialog box where your configuration starts.

I think you can spare your time and take a look at this

Remember, the type of configuration you see there is only for UBUNTU and its derivatives.

No, that's for DSL. PPPOE is Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet. Modems are PPP.

Step one is figuring out if the modem exists and can be talked to, and on what device. Step two is configuring KPPP, or wvdial to use that device.
