How can I get a driver for my modem and how can I get connected to the internet?
Note that I am using mandrake 10.0 (kernel version 2.6.x)

Thanks,
Mohammad

if you have a "real" modem, then you don't have to obtain any drivers. just make sure your kernel supports ppp protocols (as it quite surely does) and grab some connecting app, like wvdial (for console, easy to use and set up), kppp, gppp or some...then just see the app's help on how it works, let it configure the modem or configure it by hand and click connect. with wvdial, you simply run wvdialconfig and it creates a configfile where you then add your username and dialnumer etc..and that's pretty much it, then just wvdial to connect. kppp is a graphical app, which asks you some info like windows does: write the number you dial to, your username, in which port the modem is in (ttyS1, ttyS2 etc...like com1, com2 in dos) and so on.

BUT.

if you don't have a "real" modem, but a winmodem that needs software to run (ie a driver diskette/cd in windows), then you

1) hope it's so known model it has drivers for linux, and you can get them from some website (manufacturer or some driver-coding-place), and hope it's free and you don't have to pay for it

2) buy a real modem. winmodems are Not real modems, since they lack the software-side and need drivers....grrr....

your modem is apparently an ESS Technology ES2898 pci modem

i smell a winmodem here...

b0uncer is exactly right you will find it a lot easier to set up when you use a hardware ("real") modem (as in external serial port types)
