BT Voyager USB ADSL Modem


Ok, this must be the dreaded question!!!!

is there a driver to enable this modem to work with redhat?

Luckily I will be accessing the internet via a modem router after christmas, but until then I want to start using redhat instead of xp, but I cant until I get internet access.

Any advice?

First of all, you're probably going to get better answers or quicker solutions in our Hardware forum since your asking if your hardware is supported or not.

Secondly, be considerate to the members who answer questions on this site and not bump your own thread until about 24 hours has passed by without a response. Members are busy, your not always going to get a reply within seconds or minutes.

Moved to Hardware where its more suitable.

I've already checked that website, the modem is not supported.

There are two types of modem
1) BT Voyager
2) BT Voyager 100

According to their site, the voyager 100 is in the 'not supported' section

or maybe I'm reading it wrong

I have to agree with gazza on this one. That might have sped up your responses as it does actually help if you provide better details in your questions. Your original question did not indicate you were using the 100 but rather the other one.

Regards.

The only sollution I can find for this, is to either buy another modem, or connect via a router and ethernet card.

I've tried various things but none of them seem to work.

EM 'modem not found'

Just to add my opinion

I have had problems getting the BT Voyager modem working consistently in Windows - as have other work colleagues etc. Used to have to reinstall the software every few weeks etc etc. Now I use a ethernet modem (X4 zoom) and have far fewer glitches

I would not waste the effort of trying to get it working in Linux....
