    Is this an External or USB modem?

    ^It's external usb modem, data card type.

    What do you see if you execute command
    tail /var/log/messages
    After connecting the modem?

    Tried wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf?

    In Ubuntu 9.04, you should be able to use NetworkManager to connect.

    Right-click the NetworkManager icon, found next to the Date/Time. Select "Edit Connections", then select the "Mobile Broadband" tab. The click the "+Add" button, a "New Connection Wizard" should start up. Input the proper info for your device and account.

    Edit: It is possible that your provider isn't listed. You will then have to select an existing provider, and edit it to create a new one. According to this blog, it should work out-of-the-box on 9.04:

    This modem is reported to work out-of-the-box on Ubuntu 9.04. When you plug it in, a CDMA connection configuration box should pop up. I take it that this is not happening for you?

    This should be covered under the option driver, but the How-To link says to use the usbserial driver, loaded with the specific modems options. You can try, using your cards USB ID number.
    sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x140b
    If you get an error after doing this, post the error here. You may then need to remove the modem and re-insert it.

    I dont get any pop up box. Moreover i tried that command. But it said "FATAL: usbserial not found"...

    Try this command, it will give you info on the module and show the location of it.
    modinfo usbserial
    If it gives a location, look in that folder to see if it is actually there.

    I tried installing wvdial from the cd. But i couldnt. The cd was what i got by subscribing for free. The modem is usb type. Its not at all detecting the usb. It has a memory allotted in it. I couldnt acces that also.
