I'm new to Linux so I may be totally off, but here is my response anyway. I'm using ZenWalk not Fedora, but I had a similar issue with a USB NIC. It defaulted to eth0 and USB was found on eth1. All I did was switch and it worked fine. Don't know if that would be the same for a modem or not, but it might be worth a try switching.
