    This modem will not work in Linux. All attempts will fail, so conserve your energy and forget about getting it to work...EVER! I had the same modem and now it is lying in my heap of unused/old hardware.

    It is not possible at all. You need to buy an external modem to use under Linux.

    Well, you can make it work. Follow the guide at http://www.sm56.tk/ , only if you are familiar with kernel compilation.
