does anyone have any idea how to make this usb modem work under freebsd? 
when i type ifconfing -a this is what appears:
lp0:flags=8810<POINTOPOINT,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
faith0:flags=8002<BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
lo0:flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16389
inet6::1 prefixlen 128
inet6:fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopid 0x3
inet netmask axff000000
ppp0:flags=8010<POINTOPOINT,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
sl0:flags=c010<POINTOPOINT,link2,MULTICAST> mtu 052

according to some other people neither of these devices are the modem. on 
the dmesg the modem is detected and i have usb enabled im using 4.8r and the 
modem works just fine under win xp with usb. when i detache it under fbsd a 
message appears saying that the sb4100 was detached and same thing when i 
attach it back.
thanks for helping.
