No /dev/ttyUSB<*> in CentOS 5.4

I'm trying to configure a wireless broadband usb modem on centos but on executing wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf

I have allready install usb-modeswitch on system.

wvdial...only checks for ttyS1,2,3 and it doesn't search for /dev/ttyUSB*

when I manually check for ttyUSB's they don't exist at all.

any help would be appreciated.

Sometimes devices based on USB / serial converter aren't named ttyUSB*, I remember, at least, ttyACM(*) for example... To check the device name, I would do a "dmesg" just after having plugging the device, you'll some last lines which reflect the device detection by the kernel, and certainly its name will appear.
