I just installed arch on my new server, and I have to say - I love it!
there is just one small problem, I have an USB modem to connect to the internet (Alcatel speedtouch 330), but it seems my USB hardware isn't detected...
output of some (hopefully) helpful commands:

I use an Abit Ai7 Motherboard, which is well supported AFAIK.
Am I doing something wrong, or does anyone have the same experience?
Thanks in advance!
Ok, I hate replying to my own post, and I hate begging for help... but since I still have this problem, and I need to find a fix as soon as possible, I really need some help on this one.
Can someone at least point me to the right direction?
I don't like to be forced to buy an ethernet modem, or to use other distributions (don't know wether this is an Arch problem, might be the same on other distributions though)
Thanks in advance!
try lsusb - see if that spits anything out... what kind of modem is it (model number, manufacturer, etc)
also, try "dmesg | grep -i usb" and maybe "grep -i usb /var/log/everything"
There is a package for the speedtouch drivers:
pacman -S speedtouch
Check the wiki: http://wiki2.archlinux.org/index.php/Speedtouch
what kind of modem is it (model number, manufacturer, etc)
whoops, you said that already... yeah I think speedtouch requires some special setup - follow snowman's suggestions
Well... the problem is not really the modem itself, I managed to get that one working on an other computer running linux.
it's just that I don't have any support for USB, even my USB-stick won't mount (using http://wiki2.archlinux.org/index.php/USB%20Sticks).
'lsusb' doesn't give any outpout
dmesg | grep -i usb gives me the following:
PCI0 HUB0 UAR1 USB0 USB1 USB2 USB3 USBE MODM usbcore: registered new driver usbfs usbcore: registered new driver hub ohci_hcd: 2004 Nov 08 USB 1.1 'Open' Host Controller (OHCI) Driver (PCI) USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver v2.2 usbcore: deregistering driver usbfs usbcore: deregistering driver hub usbcore: registered new driver usbfs usbcore: registered new driver hub ohci_hcd: 2004 Nov 08 USB 1.1 'Open' Host Controller (OHCI) Driver (PCI) USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver v2.2 Initializing USB Mass Storage driver... usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage USB Mass Storage support registered.
'mount | grep usb' says "none on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)", but "/proc/bus/usb/devices" doesn't exsists
