With the help from Daniel who done screenshots, I completed 
drakconnect.xml with the part on 3G modem.
In the same time, I added also the part for Cable modem connection, as 
there is no need to have such a modem to configure it.
Drakconnect.xml is updated in Calenco.

Thus I need yet:
- Satellite connection (DVB)
- Bluetooth Dial-Up Networking

Thanks very much, Daniel.
