I am trying to get a Novatel Wireless Ovation U720 EVDO modem to work 
with Freebsd.
So far I am not having any luck. When it is plugged in it is recognizes 
as a ugen device it
needs to look like a serial device, as it is sort of like a hayes modem.

It has a vendor id of 0x1410 and a product id of 0x2110. I tried adding 
these to
usbdevs and ubsa.c but it is still recognized as ugen0.

Plugging it into a linux laptop it is recognize as a ttyUSBn device and 
using ppp we were able to
get connected to the internet. I would like to be able to use it with 
Freebsd 6.2 though.
