If you're trying to connect to the internet while on a live medium, you may experience some problems. Sometimes you need to install on to HD for the modem to work. Don't know why.
Also, after you plug in your modem you need to wait a couple of minutes. It takes about 2 min on my dual core system after which the usb modem gets recognized.
Lastly are you sure that you are entering in the right dial out number?
