Have a read through this and

Google for these information -
1) Modem_model + Linux + driver
2) "insert lspci vendor ID" + Linux + driver

Once you have the driver installed for the internal modem, it's all about making certain tweaks into the wvdial configs and should be good run wvdial.
The hardest bit is finding the right driver for your modem (especially true if it does not provide one or is a software modem [winmodem]). I used soft
modems long ago to remember the details.
