Ho do i install Telstra Bigpond Wireless Broardband (USB plug in) on Kubuntu

Hi all, I have installed Kubuntu 9.04 on my ex Mandriva USB swing device and after a shaky start all works ok (at this point i have removed the windows hard drive and using the USB device)
Now i need to use the Internet, I have a Telstra Mobile Bigpond wireless broadband USB device which is great for windows, but i want to use it on kubuntu if i can, because i am a newbee i'm stuck

The first thing to do is plug it in, then see if your system detects and identifies it. Once you've plugged it in, open a konsole and type: dmesg | <<- This is the 'pipe' symbol, hold shift and press the key before the letter 'z' tail. Post the output to this thread. Also type: lsusb and post the output to this thread.
