OK - then lets do this in logical steps
I'd suggest that you remove any possibility of conflict by taking out
the Agere modem.
First - go to http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/index.php
Print the INSTALL file
Download the driver
remove the Agere modem so that there is no possibility of conflict
Install the HSF drivers exactly as required by the INSTALL file using
Method A (.rpm). *DO* make sure that you remove any previous versions
of the driver as instructed by the INSTALL file. *DONT* be tempted to
take any shortcuts.
Then see how you get on. As instructed, run hsfconfig
Once that is running OK, then we can worry about kppp
