Strange..

My suggestion, since you apparently have drivers for the modem, is to call the place that gave you the modem. If they gave you Linux drivers with it, they likely support it.

Just to second what Brian said, I did some googling, and found the same thing. Doesn't seem anyone has gotten this to work under any version of Linux w/ just the USB connection. The only success stories I found, were when someone purchased an NIC card(prolly around 20 bucks), or ran it through their onboard LAN, and connected it via ethernet.

Thats probably going to be your only option...

Ok I read the doc you mentioned above. It is using the CDCether module. From the looks it should work.

Now to help further I need the output from the following commands to make sure I get things as simply as cut and paste for you. DO NOT have the modem plugged into the USB port at this time. It would be better to just reboot with no modem plugged in.

Post output from the commands. I need the info from every one.
uname -r
/sbin/ifconfig -a
/sbin/lspci
/sbin/lsusb
/sbin/lsmod
cat /etc/modprobe.conf
ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/usb/net
and the last 10 lines of ' dmesg '

===============add a line like this to divide the outputs before and after===============

Now plug in the modem to the USB port. Wait 10 secs.
Post the output of the following again.
/sbin/lspci
/sbin/lsusb
/sbin/lsmod
/sbin/ifconfg -a
last 20 line of ' dmesg '

Do all the above commands and post the results. Without the above info I cannot go any further. Just cut and paste my post and enter your info from the commands so as not to miss one and keep it in the order I have them in.

Is there any reason you need to use this old of distro?

It uses many old things like the issue you have in your other post about the usb adsl modem. Seeing the kernel version explains the problems.

The X is using old XFree86 stuff where todays distro use Xorg which is what others are asking about.
Kernel is a whole tree version down.

To stay in the Redhat distro go with Fedora Core 5 or 6. I would use 5 if it was me.

Now you either follow the gentoo handbook, and install gentoo; or you get another recent distro. Of course you'll surely also have to configure your modem.
