After much wrestling, make-ing and ./configuring, I failed to get

But can someone please confirm whether, or not, this modem has an
Alcatel Speedtouch chipset?
Yes, it definitely looks like a SpeedTouch. I've added its IDs to the
driver in my CVS tree to see what happens. Wanna give it a try?
export CVS_RSH=`which ssh`
cvs -d :ext:cvs.infradead.org:/home/cvs co speedtch
sudo modprobe atm
sudo insmod ./usb_dsl.ko
sudo insmod ./speedtch.ko
You also need the firmware. Do you have a CD with firmware on it? We can
try the Alcatel/Thompson firmware if not. Either build the
firmware_extract tool from the userspace package, or download it from
Then run it on whatever firmware file you have, move the resulting
'boot.bin' to /lib/firmware/speedtch_fw1 and 'firmware.bin'
A current snapshot of the kernel driver is there too, in case you're
IPv6-challenged. It's speedtouch-20041003.tar.gz
