I'll try PCITools.Scan when I get back to the wireless terminal. 
Now I've got to use the old proven wired-internet, from here.

I tried CD:A2 -> Oberon seriously for the first time and found it a good
experience, but was not able to mount anything.
See my next post with the many trace/logs.

The previous model

googling found this extra info from the neighbouring country, which
better tells what type of a usb-interface/type it is:-------------
My provider
   telephon/internet change the hardware from Huawei ETS2252 to Huawei
   ETS2252+. The adaptador usb/seria for ETS2252 is a texas instrument
   "ti_usb_3410" and no problem with my linuxbox.
   But with ETS2252+ not function :(
   I'm not find any information on internet :-)
   I try any rules for udev and "usb-modeswitch", but nothing :-(
   Before  I call to huawei Mozambique, I post here my problem for any
   idea.   .....

   And the "lsusb -v"   <---- !?
