i feel you on the usb dsl modem front...

it took me a couple of days or inetnse searching and question asking but here's what i found out:

Make sure you have a 2.4.x kernel and up (except 2.4.5 i have heard that this kernel is not good for this for some reason)... Make sure the kernel you have compile has usb support...

depending on your system (do yu generally use rpm or tar.gz?) You will need the Speedtouch RPM or TAR.GZ... Also go to the Alcatel Speedtouch website and download their most recent will be called speedmgmt-#$%-tar.gz...

Next, open /etc/modules.conf. Change the usb line from usb-uhci to just uhci (this will keep the unmounting of usb devices from sticking at shutdown). You can do this: /sbin/rmmod usb-uhci but your computer will stick for good (until yu do a hard reboot at elast) 95% of the time. So go ahead and reboot.

Make sure your modem is plugged in before Linux loads all the way up. Next go to your RPM. Do this:

$ rpm -Uvh Speedtouch-version-i585.rpm


$ tar -xvzf speedmgmt-version.tar.gz


cd mgmt

then as root:

cp mgmt.o /usr/share/speedtouch

cd /etc/hotplug

touch speedtouch

open draknet (or any similar gui internet device configurator) and do the do the gui configure but do not start with this because it will not work...
if youre in the usa use the settings for Italy...

then still as root:

/sbin/rmmod uhci

and wait about 20-30 sec....

/sbin/modprobe uhci

the green lights should be on... or if you got something like "segmentation fault dont panic...wait for a few more seconds and then do a modprobe again...

still as root:

the lights should blink... wait.... you will see an [OK] except it may be green...

one more thing:

as root:

route add default ppp0

open netscape or whatever yu like and there you go...

oh yeah... to stop it do this:

/usr/share/speedtouch/ stop

/sbin/rmmod uhci

and then to restart it....

/sbin/modprobe uhci and then rerun the speedtouch start again... good luck!
