Hi CJ,
open a terminal, and type pppconfig
set up your internet connection there, it will try to find your modem,
if it doesn't find it you will have to enter the port yourself, and when 
type at command line   pon (and whatever you put in the configure as 
your isp.
and press enter to disconnect type poff. If you didn't put anything 
where it asks for your isp,
just type "pon" (without the quotes) and press enter.
e.g. I type to connect   pon internode
Hope this helps
Take Care
