Somebody in the thread at some point said:
| The usb modem is recognised succesfully by the kernel,  just simply
| configure ppp to get it connecting to the net.
| I tried with the huawei 270 modem and I succesfully connected but I
| can't ping anything... it is because the modem need one usb 2.0 port or
| two usb 1.0 ports?

I have one of these, they are nice.

I would look at

route -n
ifconfig -a
cat /etc/resolv.conf

Sometimes when I use it on normal laptop, I get bogus DNS in UK.

| I have the wire to connect the modem to two usb 1.0, so just but a usb
| hub for the neo?

Dunno, see how you go, might be OK direct.  Or maybe the ping problem is
that... mine has an LED that goes blue solid when the modem is
authenticated and has comms to network provider.
