I use the HUAWEI E220 HSDPA USB Modem, and it works really smooth.

Found a Howto for this modem on several sites. I use pppd for dialup

Here is the link to the Howto i used:
The only differences i found are that Gentoo pppd don't know the

has to be BUS=="usb"... just did it as he told an everything just
worked fine
