dial up modem not found in fedora core 6


Hi. My friend is trying to get online from his laptop. He is running Fedora Core 6, and is unable to get his modem recognized by kppp. He's tried setting up an account with kppp, and tried /dev/modem as his device, as well as the other ttYS's but had no luck.

His modem is a HDAUDIO Soft Data Fax Modem with SmartCP .

Could anyone possibly help with this? Thanks.

what sort of modem is it? I'm not familar with the name you've posted.
If it's an internal "winmodem" you could be in trouble. If it's an external, it probably doesn't matter that it hasn't been detected. Forget exactly how to do it now, but you just have to use the serial port the modem's connected to.

Basically, you're looking at the wrong txt file.

scanModem provides a number of files. Read through all of them. The one to look at especially is called "ModemData.txt" ... it should contain a huge block to copy and past to help forums... like here

Dial-up modem not found

The word "soft" in the modem name sounds suspicious: it might be a winmodem, particularly if it connects to USB.

I'm using a dial-up serial modem at this moment and I never did any sort of scan for its presence. I simply ran the program system-control-network and answered its questions with the aid of the help.

Guys guys guys...

The modem he's talking about is an internal data/fax modem with a conexant chipset (google is your freind). It came with his freind's laptop, possibly an hp, and it is definately a winmodem. Basically it should work with the generic (non-free) conexant driver. It may work with one of free drivers for HSF or similar - maybe even the slmodem + alsa drivers.

There is a good chance that a decent driver may be available for install via YUM (FC6 right?). However ... this may not be the case. Whatever, we need the output of the scanModem script before advising any specific course of action.

Other references:

http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/

Of course - the simplest solution is just to buy an external modem and use that. Serial modems are supported out of the box in FC6, google USB modems (or use the HCL here) before you buy any.
