Let's see if I got this right... the modem works once you load the
module, but (the module is not auto-loaded on system startup so) after
a reboot the modem stops working?
If that's it, does it work adding a modprobe command to a late system
startup script? (Not knowing Ubuntu specifically, look for a rc.local,
which is usually executed at the end of the boot sequence, or edit the
networking startup scripts. Look around under /etc, primarily in
directories with names like /etc/rc.d, /etc/init.d, etc.)
Once the network interface comes up, you'll need to assign an IP
address to it to be able to do anything particularly useful, for which
you either need a static address, or (more likely) a DHCP client to be
executed. Try "dhcpcd eth0" (or whatever the interface is called) as
root; it should return you to the prompt with no output, or at the
very least no error output. Note that this has nothing to do with the
modem being recognized or the network interface itself coming up.

answering at time.
We gave up. The solution was buy a new ethernet switch
and forget everything about the usb adsl modem.
A friend (he knows a lot of Linux!) said us that it is
very difficult to work with these modems with Linux.
He recommended that, for sanity, we should buy an
ethernet switch, and it is that we did.
Anyway, thanks a lot for your time and answer.
