Login to Mandriva, go to the Mandriva Control Center

Star-> System-> Configuration-> Configure Your System

enter the root password

Click on Network and Internet-> click Manage Interfaces. Look at the interfaces that you have configured, and click Connect in the boot right of the screen to connect to the Internet. At this screen you can also see which interfaces your computer has for connecting to the Internet. If your interface is not listed, click Close, and then click Add an Interface to add your particular device.

Optional - Mandriva offers web based support incidents. I have used several of these incidents with my Mandriva Corporate Desktop. One of the best benefits of the Mandriva Corporate Desktop is one year of unlimited web support. WIth the web support you get a dedicated team of Mandriva experts to answer your question. This is one of the benefits of a commerically supported version: you can get free help through Google or LQ, but if the issue has business significance, there is a commercial resource to assist you with your issue.

I've tried that many times. Its never worked. I've tried doing it through the command line as well. I've also tried using windows drivers with ndiswrapper. That didn't work either.

Could you post the output of ifconfig please, along with the internal ip address your modem uses (should start either 10.0.0.something or 196.something).

Can you connect to the modem? If it has some kind of web-based configuration system that you can access, then your internet access may be getting stopped by other settings.
