Alcatel USB Speedtouch modem....

Hey guys whats up .. I have a problem I am trying to get my Alcatel USB Speedtouch modem with sympatico ISP (Basic DSL).

Here is the problem:
Jan 31 21:33:44 darkstar kernel: usb_control/bulk_msg: timeout
Jan 31 21:33:44 darkstar kernel: usbdevfs: USBDEVFS_BULK failed dev 3 ep 0x85 len 512 ret -110
Jan 31 21:34:46 darkstar pppd[1282]: LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
Jan 31 21:34:46 darkstar pppoa3[1288]: Error reading from source device
Jan 31 21:34:46 darkstar pppoa3[1283]: Woken by a sem_post event -> Exiting

How do I fix it? I followed the FAQ Letter by Letter

By the way this error shows up when I upload the firmware and run "pppd call adsl"

Another question is where it says "your_login_here" does that include my or just my username?

By the way my Distro is Slackware 9.1 and I just did a fresh install.
Thanks, Crypty
