What modem did you buy?

It looks like a software modem not a hardware modem. Hardware modems are what I call real modems. They do not need drivers to work in linux or windows. You need to get the drivers for the modem. http://www.linuxant.com has the drivers if I am right about what modem you have. I looked at some of them files and it appears you have a smartlink modem if the is wrong please correct me. Ubuntu might have some rpm packages for that modem. I would suggest if you buy another modem again get a real hardware modem.

Switched to mandriva which auto-detected one of the many modems I have plugged in. Thanks for the help though.
