Would be fine to get some more info on the modem. Use "lspci" and give us
the corresponding line for your modem.

These are the informations you got from the windows device-manager?

How you define "Ubuntu does not recognize"? In the sense of "There's no
popup mentioning, the device is now available master"? Or more in the sense,
that the tty-node doesn't exist?

1. Check if the modem is not already detected: "dmesg | less" search for a
line from the serial-driver telling, that the device got connected to a
serial-port node (ttyS4) for example.

Or, if not ...

2. Use the output of "lspnp -v" to get the i/o-resources and try to go the
manual way with "setserial /dev/ttyS4 irq 18 port 0xffff autoconfig" (change
the irq and the i/o-port to the values you got from lspnp).

Then check if the device-node /dev/ttyS4 is available. If not "cd /dev" and
"./MAKEDEV ttyS4".

Then use this device for kppp or any other program you want to use with the
