You'll have to give a bit more information on the modem, is it listed 
in the output of the lspci command? Does the output of the lsmod 
command show that there is a driver module loaded for it?

Even then, I would not recommend using wvdial, since the System ->
Administration -> Networking menu is easier to set up the modem 
interface (most likely ppp0).
