As a former Lubuntu 10.04 user with an USB modem i might be able to help 
First of all, follow this 
http://forum.phillw.net/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=92 for connect your modem 
(thanks PhillW!!).
After that, your laptop will be connected even if the network icon says 
otherwise... :/
Now to get a clean connection:
1 - install modem-manager
2 - install usb-modeswitch & usb-modeswitch-data
3 - go to the network icon, and create a new connection there for your 
modem (even if it doesn't appear, but Lubuntu will use any modem for 
that connection later). Choose your country, provider and all of that. 
In the last screen, be sure to set the connection able to every user and 
that it connects automatically.
4 - restart your machine with your modem plugged in.


Normally, it starts connected and your network icon show you that. This 
workaround worked for me in at least 5 machines with 3 different USB 
modems (though with the newest one it was a little difficult to connect, 
but if your modem is not that new, you should not have problems :)

To avoid all of this, i recommend you to use Lubuntu 11.10 or 11.04 
since the packets that you must install come installed by default and 
now the USB modems works prefectly :)

Hope it helps!
