you need software tcl, usbmodeswitch with the latest data and make porteus module ...
unfortunately I and my colleagues have a little problem with kppp in porteus 1.2 rc2

sorry for google translate.

Why dont you try Network Manager instead of wicd? http://porteus.org/forum/viewtopic.php? ... 1289#p9513

This should work for you!

Cheers!
