You use PPP to connect via these devices. I can't comment about this model exactly, but I have my E220 (Vodafone) working via both Gnome network manager (in Ubuntu 9.04) and wvdial. My /etc/wvdial.conf file contains the following:
[Dialer Defaults]
Phone = *99***16# 
Username = web 
Password = web
Stupid Mode = 1
Dial Command = ATDT
Auto DNS = 0
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0

[Dialler huawei]
Baud = 460800
Init2 = ATZ
Init3 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init4 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","Internet"
ISDN = 0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
with modern kernels (post, I think, 2.6.20), it should just work. Does DSL use an older kernel, though? If so, the kernel may get confused between the device's "CD-ROM" and "modem" modes. This can probably be handled with a little utility (huaweiAktBbo) that can be set to run from a script before wvdial.

Hope this helps,
