    Well, I have been trying to tackle the same problem for the past months with no results... USB modems jus lack the support it shud have... better get a NIC and do the work hassle-free... btw, whats the modem name/model? that might help for an answer perhaps...

    Get another NIC. One for your modem and another one for the network. They are too cheap these days. If you want support for USB modems then annoy the hardware manufacturers. Ask them to either release source of their drivers or to release drivers for *nix.
