Conexant chipset internal modem - dialing problem on RHEL 4
Hi (Whoever is viewing this),
I managed to successfully install my internal modem (conexant chipset) on RHEL 4 (2.6.9-5.EL).
Successfully executed 'wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf'. Now when I run 'wvdial' the modem picks the line and starts dialing in tone dialing mode. Immediately after dialing, the line is dropped even before the connection is established.
My line supports pulse dialing. I faced the same problem in my Win XP. There, even after changing the dialing mode to pulse; the modem was still going for the tone. Finally, after a lot of tinkering I stumbled on this - when I added a ',' in the dialing rules box (where it is mentioned - type the number you use to access local lines) the modem was able to get the required pause before commencing pulse mode dialing.
I am sure it is the same case with RHEL 4 now, but I don't where to include that extra ',' in wvdial.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
