Ethernet Adsl Modem Driver Problems And Install Problems...
i jes received madrake 9.2 and installed it without much trouble.
Howevr i have a USB ADSL MODEM which is not recognized by MANDRAKE 9.2.
I am using this modem that runs in wondows using a globespan virata ADSL driver, it uses Encapsulation:RFC2364
Now the problem i am facing is that mandrake does not recognize / detect the ADSL modem.
Hence i cannot get online using linux, i have to keep switchign back to windows to access the internet, hence even if there is a driver available to download.. how can i download it using wondows if linux is on a anopther partition??
and how does the installation of this driver work??
please am real newie at this.... and very eager to do away with BILL GATES~!!!
-----I AM RUNNING-----
Intel celeron 1.7 GHz
40 GB HDD with 10 separate partition for LINUX
Mandrake 9.2 OS
Have you tried looking online for mentions of a linux driver or others with that modem working?
What format's your windows partition? You should be able to mount it and at least read from it, eg copy downloaded drivers over.
i have found this eciadsl site that has its own driver developed but after configuring teh driver... it doesnt seem to have downloaded what they mention as ARK SOFTWARE.. which i think makes the connexion...
the site is http://eciadsl.flashtux.org
Also i am using win98.. so am guessing its a FAT32 format.. i dunno reeally.. abny help would be great!!
what chipset was your modem?
i assume you don't know.
you should download at http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/scanModem.gz
then extract it using file roller to your home directory.
open up an terminal and type chmod a+x scanModem
next type "./scanModem" then that will gave you lots of information about your modem. please post that and i will have an idea if you found the right driver or not.
hi tricky linux,
one small very basic and almost dumb doubt.. if i download this in windows (whihc i am using to get online now) how do i get it to linux if its bigger thana floppy size??
please explain in howto commandline inputs... thanks o much
the files is only around 40kb when it's compressed. it's small enough for a floppy disc.
Try solve it yourself, before waste time.
hey again tricky linux,
ok i downloaded it.... and tried CHMOD
but it doesnt work...
it says, bad command... cannot find file or directory
sorry, for got to tell you
you have to extract the file first. use file roller.
then the extracted file should be "scanModem" and you could run it "./scanModem"
IT STILL DOESNT WORK!!!
ok.. i tried extracting.. it but to which directory??
anywys i think i foundout that my modem runs off a globespan chipset.. mostly ti is GS7070...
so now what do i do??... pls advise!!
you extract it to your home directory which would be
"yourusername" is your user name.
did you check wether there is a driver thats on the modem's installation cd?
after you extract it just open a teriminal, then do "./scanModem"
DID THAT TOO
ok confrimation on 2 things, my modem runs of a globespan GS7070 chipset,
the installation CD (for windows) has a driver for it.. but i am guessign that works only for windows...
if however u think this same CD can work for mdk9.2 pls do tell me how!! as in if i have to make mdk9.2 search for the driver then how do i do that??
and install it as root
you login as root by "su -"
#rpm -Uhv eciadsl-usermode-0.9-1.i586.rpm
that should get your dsl modem working
Hi, i have problem like your. Help me plz..:cry:
[alexey@langames modem]$ chmod a+x scanModem
[alexey@langames modem]$ ./scanModem
ONLY use scanModem downloaded as: http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/scanModem.gz
./scanModem should ONLY be run within a Linux/UNIX partition.
If within a MicroSoft/DOS partition, abort with Ctrl-C now !!!
Copy scanModem.gz to your Linux partition and restart.
./scanModem: line 1: gcc: command not found
Please browse the folder Modem/ containing the following files:
1stRead.txt DriverCompiling.txt General.txt ModemData.txt Rational.txt SoftModem.txt Testing.txt UNSUBSCRIBE.txt
I don't now my chipset ver., but i find my modem by PID & VID, it is here: my modem
What can i do???
I find this, but i don't sure..
P.S. I have Mandrake 10.1 & my modem is USB!
