Like the guides warn, USB modems are not really ideal for network 
connectivity; I avoid it even with Windows and opt instead for getting a 
modem that goes into an Ethernet switch. That'll save you tons of headaches.

BUT that doesn't answer your question. At what point is your connection 
attempt failing? Any error logs or messages you can post?
