speedtouch usb modem

Okay, I have a Speed Touch USB modem (the flat curvy turquoise one). I copied mgmt.o onto a floppy and inserted it when asked during the Mandrake 10 installation. I entered my account details and changed the number to 0, 38 (this is for for UK isn't it?). Still can't connetc.

A friend of mine has the same modem and said this didn't work for him either. He got a friend to come round to his place who fixed things by writing 3 lines of text in a script file. He has since looked for the file so he could give me a copy, but can't find it.

I have tried several sets of instructions I found on the Internet, including one which was supposedly fool proof (yeah right). Does anyone know how to connect using this modem?

One other thing, is my modem the same inside as the 330?

Have you already tried the following ?

As root, type rmmod speedtch and launch the following script :

It will likely say something like you have no USB. Edit the script, comment the test :

# if [ -z "${USB_TYPE}" ]; then
# echo "No USB Bus found!" | tee -a $LOGFILE
# error=`expr $error + 2`
# fi

and relaunch.

It worked for me.
