I use pppconfig to setup my dial up.
Open a terminal and type sudo pppconfig enter password and fill in.
Leave "provider" alone, and when finished in terminal type pon
Type in terminal poff to disconnect.
External usb modems I have tried are (usually) found at ttyACM0
if modem isn't auto-detected and you need to set it manually.
Hope this helps.
