http://www.linux-usb.org/FAQ.html  is the page that helped me.  It also
recommends trying to "rmmod ehci-hcd" which will make the modem work in
USB 1.1 mode instead of hi-speed mode, and if that works you could have
a problem with the cable or the connector.   Read that FAQ and see if
anything rings a bell.

Random quote of the last-time-I-ran-bash:
Peter Griffin:  Look, you got anything you could possibly want right here, now just eat your cinnamon bun, and stop being a bad dog. 
Brian Griffin:  [gasp] How dare you? How dare you! 
Peter Griffin:  How dare I? How dare I? Were do you think you're going? 
Brian Griffin:  [angrily] Out. 
Peter Griffin:  Hey, you're not going anywhere without your leash. 
Brian Griffin:  I don't need your damn leash, and I don't need you! I'm going for a walk. [shuts door] 
Peter Griffin:  Don't worry. He won't get far without this. [shows something strange]
