Thumbs up well this worked for me try it out

first download scanModem.gz from:- <using some other os>

http://132.68.73.235/linmodems/packages/scanModem.gz

or just search scanModem.gz on google.com and download

then copy it to u r home folder of ubuntu then follow the step:-

then open u r terminal and type;-
Code:
gunzip scanModem.gz
To make it executable:
Code:
chmod +x scanModem
Run diagnositics with:
Code:
 ./scanModem
Please try to detect the modem with:
Code:
sudo wvdialconf
If the modem is detected, enter your dialout information with
Code:
sudo  gedit  /etc/wvdial.conf
removing the ; < > symbols

Before dialing out all COMM channels except "lo" must be closed. Check with:
Code:
ifconfig
SHut channels with commands like:
Code:
sudo ifconfig eth0 down
Checking with:
Code:
 ifconfig
Then try a dialout with
Code:
sudo wvdial
MY FRIEND IF EVERYTHING IS PERFECT U MIGHT B ABLE TO CONNECT TO INTERNET IF ANY PROBLEM JUST REPLY
