The only easy and satisfactory way to do this is to get them to swap the 
usb modem for a desktop modem. The desktop modem uses an ethernet cable 
and pppoe. Works like a charm. This modem also has a usb port which you 
will need if you use Windows.

I have used it for years without problems, and I am running it on 12.04.
