Question ADSL connection using smartax 882 modem thru USB does not work


I have posted this before without much luck.
A later post about Linux being slow was very helpful . I increaed the RAM to 256 Mb and speed is now better.

I tried installing the MT882 in Linux FC3 with kernel 2.6....using the USB port connection it is recognised but I could not get it to function.
the Gateway address never changes from an 10.112.112.113 I think.
This modem works when connected to the NIC . However then I am no longer on the network. So the USB connection is necessary.

This did work on Fc1 with a kernel 2.4.19...nptl .
You have to compile the CDCEther module according to instructions.

But this kernel gave problems with my HP PSC1315 Multi function printer.

You might need usb drviers for that modem. That could be your problem. If you can use your usb ports for everything else except the modem and there are drivers for Windows then that is probably your problem.

I had mentioned that the modem worked with FC1 and a kernel 2.4.xx?? nptl . But here the driver was loaded as a module .
Now the driver seems to be configured in the kernel and the previous driver from FC1 does not even compile with the FC3 setup .
However the modem is identified correctly and shows in a hardware listing. It is even shown as activated under 'Netrwork'.
I use the modem under linux thru the NIC but that disconnects me from the other computers.
