I have a similar thing also. Furthermore Network Configuration Tool unable to 
detect my modem eventhough my modem already been installed properly. Without 
setting up thru this tool, however able me to communicate with my modem using 
wvdial - terminal based command. I looking for graphical interface for my 
customers. Thanks.

Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or
Fedora Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "not a bug" for now.
