For the Conexant HSF, try here (installation instructions are on the website):

As for your wireless, what is the output of running lsusb at the command prompt?

Thanks for your reply
the free driver from Linuxant gives a very slow connection at 14 kbps. The full driver costs $26, can you guide me to a free driver that gives full function.

dude, buy a serial modem and connect it up with a serial connection (be verrry careful you DO NOT buy a winmodem/softmodem) - it works very well with linux this way

but then again , thats probably more than the $26 for the driver
