Quick search on google showed many links. Most are non english so not sure if they can help. This one looks like it should help from what parts of it I can read.

There are more just goto and use the search string of ' adsl fastrate '.

Go back to and see if the modem will work in Linux with a work around. There are adapters that have USB on one end and RS-232 serial connection on the other end. If YOU plug the RS-232 end into YOUR RS-232 serial port on YOUR computer, YOU might get the system to recognize the USB modem without using the the USB ports. Linux can be configured to use PPPoE, PPPoA, or Ethernet. But straight through the USB port is not spoken of often. Keep looking at the pages on
