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
http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scri...9&submit=Go%21
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
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/arch.../msg02439.html

http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/Intel/537/

Search the archive there
http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-...technion.ac.il


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

Have you got your kernel source installed?

If yes check technion.ac.il 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 technion.ac.il and run it;
the output is quite informative and it might suggest another driver
3) failing all that, register with technion.ac.il and ask for some
help. They are great there.
4) Post solution here

Sorry I cannot help more than that
