Purhaps this is a winmodem. It is not necesarlly to buy an external modem. first look on the manufacturer site for a linux driver for your modem. but first look on the modem to see the type and the chipset

Ah, the dreaded linux vs. winmodem scenario. I wouldnt reccomend shelling out money for an external modem unless your absolutely sure there are no *nix drivers for your modem.
Check the manufacturers website, they usually have them as *nix based systems are becoming more common. Then its just a case of installing them and setting up your connection.
Hope this was of some assistance.
