the "modem" is NOT supported by NetworkManager, also as of today arnet only ships this modem to the client...
Maybe this should be provided anyways in case NM gets fixed some day

I could provide this patch, but it may not be useful, as i said before the modem is not supported in Network Manager yet, there is hope now than Modem Manager was released...yet there is no "driver"....
maybe this bug should be suspended and dependent on 277613 ?
