Whenever I try to start a connection I get...

linux:~ # tail -f /var/log/messages
Mar 25 12:54:03 linux pppd[6857]: Plugin passwordfd.so loaded.
Mar 25 12:54:03 linux pppd[6857]: pppd 2.4.2 started by root, uid 0
Mar 25 12:54:03 linux pppd[6857]: Failed to open /dev/ttyACM1: No such
device or address
Mar 25 12:54:03 linux pppd[6857]: Exit.

When I start wvdialconf

linux:~ # wvdialconf wvdial.conf
Scanning your serial ports for a modem.

My /var/log/messages contains:

My dmesg:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------
usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using address 2
usb 1-1: Product: USB HSF Modem
usb 1-1: Manufacturer: ????????????????????
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suseplugger (suse device manager) recognize my modem in the
device list as "Conexant Systems...bla bla bla".

Any ideas?

Thank you.
