    Hi, fist yo have to know if you system recognices the modem.
    Write in the console (as root): lsusb
    Then, a list with the usb devices conected to your computer appears.
    If your modem apears, this is a good step.

    Now, you have to load the module usbnet (if not loaded) put lsmod and look for a module called usbnet.

    Then open the file /etc/network/interfaces and add the following lines:
    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    # Mi interfaz
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    write the file
    Then, write in a console: ifup eth0
    If all goes well you should have your modem working
