modulations are protocols used to transfer data between modems. More 
information on that is available at:


When a valid license is installed, all the modulations known to the 
driver are unlocked and most likely that a modulation with higher speed 
will be selected than the one selected with 14.4kbps max. while having 
no license installed.

So if the stability issue is related to the specific modulation 
currently used, installing a valid license is likely to solve the problem.

We have a system with udev 0.95 here, so we will do some testing and if 
we can reproduce the problem, a fix is likely to be included in the next 
release of the driver.
