How to get Huawei EC1561 USB modem working under FreeBSD 8.2 ?

I earlier had a Huawei EC1261-based USB modem which used to connect
smoothly to the internet under FreeBSD 8.2 using the u3g module. For
some reasons, I have had to switch to another provider (MTS) who swapped
the Huawei EC1261-based USB modem with a Huawei EC1561-based USB modem.
And my FreeBSD system cannot connect to the internet anymore.
Here are the contents of my ppp.conf (I assume authkey means password) :
set log Phase Chat LCP IPCP CCP tun command
allow users bourne
set device /dev/cuaU0.0
set speed 115200
set dial "ABORT BUSY ABORT NO\\sCARRIER TIMEOUT 5 \
\"\" AT OK-AT-OK AT&FE0V1X1&D2&C1S0=0 OK \\dATDT\\T TIMEOUT 40 CONNECT"
set timeout 180 # 3 minute idle timer (the default)
enable dns # request DNS info (for resolv.conf)
set phone "#777"
set authname "internet at internet.mtsindia.in"
set authkey "MTS"
set timeout 0
set ifaddr 10.0.0.1/0 10.0.0.2/0 255.255.255.0 0.0.0.0
add default HISADDR
set dial AT+CRM=1
The u3g module is loaded at boot-time via /etc/rc.local :
ppp -auto huawei
I am using opendns/google servers for DNS in resolv.conf :
DNS cannot really be an issue because when I ping the IP address
184.108.40.206, I get 100% packet loss.
Can someone please point me in the right direction so that my FreeBSD
system starts connecting to the internet using the new modem ?
Thank you &
