The first question is how the device appears to NetBSD.  Boot the system, then 
insert the device, and copy-and-paste the dmesg output for that device and send 
it to the list.

With luck, it will appear as a ucom device or some such.  If so, you need to 
use pppd to talk.  The second question, though, is what is the configuration 
and dialing sequence.  If you've tried the device on some other OS, you may be 
able to copy the sequences from it.  Googling for Linux support might help, 
too.  Right now, though, we need more information.
