Tell me what outputs you need from the terminal.
What's the output of lsusb after you have plugged it in and waited 10S ? This'll tell us what the device really is (the likely chipset).

Some of these devices show up as being a CD-ROM when first plugged in. This "CD-ROM" has the windows drivers (useless for linux). You need to switch it using usb_modeswitch before it will show up as /dev/ttyUSB0 or similar.

Once /dev/ttyUSB0 shows up, you can use the device with wvdial See man wvdial and man wvdial.conf (or just search LQ)

Let us know how you get on.
