Modem Intel 537 driver?
Does any body know from where I can get the driver for Intel 537 modem?

I tried all the drivers in Intel site for Intel 537EP
but all failed to get my modem to work. I keep getting the following:
Intel 537 card found
This Intel(R) 537EP Modem driver won't install on Intel 537 card, please download the right driver

see for example

Search the archive there

I had a 536EP once, such a pain...

Thanks for reply. I downloaded intel-537- and tried to compile it but this is what I got:

Failed to build driver

Any other suggestion?

Have you got your kernel source installed?

If yes check archive to see if the driver is compatible with
the kernel version you have

If this fails you can
1) Complain to Intel (not about this driver, I mean the one you tried before)
2) Download scanmodem from and run it;
the output is quite informative and it might suggest another driver
3) failing all that, register with and ask for some
help. They are great there.
4) Post solution here

Sorry I cannot help more than that
