Which card do yuou have? 
I have GPRS/EDGE card, which properly configures as /dev/ttyS14:
[4294703.586000] PCI: Enabling device 0000:03:00.1 (0000 -> 0001)
[4294703.586000] ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:03:00.1[A] -> GSI 18 (level, low)
-> 
IRQ 18
[4294703.586000] ttyS14 at I/O 0x4000 (irq = 18) is a 16550A

But it only works if port is set to 57600 baud, but even then the transfers 
(web browsing) justs stops after 10-15 minutes connected....

Can you specify your options for pppd/wvdial/kppp?
I would really like to make this card work properly and since your
experience 
now gives me hope I would really like to push it forward.
