Well, kind of hard to explain here.

Basically, you need to have the following:

- Kernel modules (aka hardware drivers)
- PPP support in kernel
- PPP daemon

Check out the following link for details:

maybe start with this driver:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/zyxel630-11

You didn't say which model or what kind of modem I would think this was correct.

Hello NoSpHeRaTu,

Maybe you can give a bit more information about your modem.

ZyXel makes and have made a lot of modems in the last few years.

With kind regards,

Richard
