@Blaze
this modem is supported by 'cdc_ether' kernel driver so pls try to load it first:
'modprobe cdc_ether'
then try
'modprobe usbserial vendor=0x069b product=0x0704"
if that wont help pls show output of 'tail -n 50/var/log/dmesg' after last command.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

hmmm... pls show me 'tail -n50 /var/log/dmesg' after loading the drivers.
also - pls check manually if new devices (modem) were added in /dev folder.

maybe kppp just need to be restarted to be able to see new devices?
