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.
