I wonder if anyone has new info on this topic - I suffer the same problem:

I have oodles of d/l speed in WinXP but nothing on Mandrake; although it can 'see' an unaccounted for device it doesn't figure it to be my USB ADSL modem. How do I help it along? (I don't have direct access to the internet via Linux)

Thanks in advance

I can't figure out how to set up my USB ADSL modem before. I can get online now anyway. How can I solve it, the answer is I bought a new ADSL modem with router, not USB one.
