You can find the complete list on linux-source. In /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.31/drivers/usb/serial/option.c

I have an Ovation U727 from Sprint which works well with Debian Lenny on an eee pc 900. I use wvdial to connect.

Hi ,

Now I am interested to buy wavecom gsm modem . I had a discussion with a seller , he said that the device path will be populated when I connected gsm modem .

But I think, although gsm modem not connected; always Linux OS says /dev/ttyS[ 0-3 ]

May I proceed with that ? .

Thanks & Regards,
Ashik

Yes U can proceed with that.
Linux OS usually say /dev/ttyS[0-3] because it was a composite device.
I my experience, the connection will use /dev/ttyS0.

To test it you can use "wvdialconf" or "pppconfig", it automatically determine which /dev/tty to use.
