i dont think it's necessary to compile external drivers/utils. please try with stock resources first.
run 'lsmod' and find your vendor and product ID then load the driver with following command:

Code: Select all

modprobe usbserial vendor=0x1410 product=0x1430
now you can use kppp utility as described in "Configure Dialer" section from Hamza's link: ... Itemid=166
