   From a similar thread, I picked up some information that I should try
   kldload'ing usba. But when I ran the command, I got an error message
   that there is no such module. I searched under sys/modules and there
   was no usba.ko
   Can somebody please tell me how to get my Huawei USB dial-up modem to
   work on FreeBSD 8.1 ? From dmesg, I have the following information :

   Any help would be greatly appreciated.
