Are you sure you're meant to be running insmod ptserial.o and insmod pctel.o? Try modprobe pctel and modprobe ptserial.

Also please give a link to the site you got the driver from.

it don't think it matters whether you use insmod or modprobe.

The point I tried to make in my last post was that you shouldn't have run insmod pctel etc. but just insmod pctel without the .o. What happens when you run the commands without ".o"?

also When you ran ./configure did you remember to include the parameter for pct789?

Try adding the -f option to insmod, it worked for me when I had a PCTel modem.

The unresolved symbols are likely because the precompiled binary part of the modem driver (it's not open source) was built using a different version kernel than the one on your system. If that's the only problem, insmod -f should make it work for you, but you'll get warnings about tainting the kernel.
