This is probably where you are having problems with apt. Make sure you can FTP to a server because FTP needs 21 to connect but uses higher ports for transmission.
No problems with this particular modem, apt works perfectly, it was just my worry that it wasn't secure - according to pcflank. In fact I did a successful deb sarge net-install with it onto this laptop yesterday.
Basically, GuardDog should allow connections from anywhere on the internet using port 20 (ftp-data) to your IP via ports from 1024 to 5999, otherwise FTP (and apt if you've set it to ftp) will fail.
Guarddog seems to be set up correctly as I can apt-get happily. The GUI front end makes this easy.
Please don't do that, I've got too much on to pursue this much further, that's why this is done via a list.
