Thanks Verdegal37. I had tried one usb modem and it didn-t work so I wanted to see if anyone else had a usb modem working. Following your suggestion I tried another modem, a Huawei E160G and I am happy to report that it works perfectly well.

To configure 3g-modems (globetrotters modems) like Huawei, there are templates at /usr/share/templates/3g-dialer/templates I live in Uruguay, the apn of Ancel is wrong, not gprs, the correct is adslmovil. But it seems that the user and password may be setted manually. My question: in what folder and file (most probably in the /etc directory) is the configuration of the modem 3-g?

connect the modem
in console run as root wvdialconfig
edit wvdial.conf in /etc
in console run as root wvdialconfig again
and run wvdial

Modem type = USB Modem
Stupid Mode = 1
Baud = 460800
New PPPD = 1
