the problem is that we do not see your modem in the output of the 
'lsusb' command even after you have inserted the HCF USB driver modules 
into the kernel. As long as you do not see your modem in the output of 
the previous command, you will be unable to use the modem driver.

It is important to note that the modem will only appear in your 'lsusb' 
after you have inserted the modules into the kernel. Also, this driver 
only supports USB modems based on the HCF Conexant chipset.

If you have a supported modem, it is possible that the problem is the 
kernel. In this case, please try with different versions of the kernel 
to see if there is a difference.
