Daniela, The ugen device means that there wasn't a kernel driver to handle the device. I don't believe you can use the ugen device as a formatted device (like cuaa, tty, etc).
What is the exact model of your modem? Most of the Alcatel SpeedTouch models I looked at claimed to have a UTP network port on them. I'm on a cable modem myself, but could you switch out the modem for one that does have a network port?
