Ethernet Adsl Modem Driver Problems And Install Problems...


Hi,

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~!!!
HELP.

-----I AM RUNNING-----
Intel celeron 1.7 GHz
40 GB HDD with 10 separate partition for LINUX
256DDR RAM
Mandrake 9.2 OS
----------

Regards

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.

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.

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.

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"

you extract it to your home directory which would be
/home/"yourusername"
"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"

download at
http://eciadsl.flashtux.org/download...0.9-1.i586.rpm
to /home/"yourusername"
and install it as root
you login as root by "su -"
type passwd
#cd /home/"yourusername"
#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..

scanModem writing:

[alexey@langames modem]$ chmod a+x scanModem
[alexey@langames modem]$ ./scanModem

UPDATE=2004_Nov_26
ONLY use scanModem downloaded as: http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/scanModem.gz
TMPM=/dev/shm/0tmpfile

./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!
