1) I have the same modem. It's not possible to configure this modem 
(beyond the basic username/password level) using any web browser except 
Internet Explorer.

Firefox should connect eventually (after about two minutes), but when 
you try to add forwarding rules or any other of the forms except for the 
most basic configuration you'll get "Method Not Supported" errors.

You could (in theory) reconfigure everything from the telnet interface. 
Good luck finding any documentation though..

3) Any changes you make to the modem via Windows will still be active 
when you boot back to Linux. If you have Windows installed, that's 
probably the easiest way to reconfigure your modem.
