I'm wondering why wvdial cannot find my modem. The dmesg output when I plug-in my modem is:

usb 1-1: new high-speed USB device number 3 using atmel-ehci
usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=12d1, idProduct=14f1
usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=3, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
usb 1-1: Product: Huawei EM680 w/Gobi Technology
usb 1-1: Manufacturer: HUAWEI Incorporated
qcserial 1-1:1.1: Qualcomm USB modem converter detected
usb 1-1: Qualcomm USB modem converter now attached to ttyUSB0
qcserial 1-1:1.2: Qualcomm USB modem converter detected
usb 1-1: Qualcomm USB modem converter now attached to ttyUSB1
qcserial 1-1:1.3: Qualcomm USB modem converter detected
usb 1-1: Qualcomm USB modem converter now attached to ttyUSB2

So, there definitely should be something recognized, but wvdialconf still tells me:

# wvdialconf 
Editing `/etc/wvdial.conf'.

Sorry, no modem was detected!  Is it in use by another program?
Did you configure it properly with setserial?

Please read the FAQ at http://alumnit.ca/wiki/?WvDial

Why cannot it recognize my modem?
