Dell Internal Modem not detected


I finally got the MN-520 wireless working on Fedora. Turns out that I wasnt putting 0x infront of the WEP key and that was the whole problem.

ANYWAY... I use my laptop at work from time to time on a dialup connection. I tried to add a connection type by modem but when it quiried the modem, it said there was none. If anyone has an idea how to get the internal modem working on a DELL 7500VT please post.

Thanks

Hunter

Go here http://www.heby.de/ltmodem .

Find the correct driver for your distribution and kernel, download and install it and hey presto your modem should be recognised. I have been using these for two years without a hiccup on two different 7500s with different distributions and kernels.

Thanks...

Ok,

First. Thank you for sending me the site and the information.

I'm running Redhat Fedora FC2 with the newest kernel download. I'm not sure what rpm to download now...I noticed that there are different ones for different distros

Thanks

Hunter

I've just looked at the site and there seem to be two options for Fedora Core - 8.26a9 and 8.30a1. I don't know the difference so I suggest you download both and try the 30a first as it is the latest, then the 26 if it does not work. They both apply to the 2.4.22 kernel. Good luck

PS Just reread your second post and it sounds as though your distro and kernel may be later than these, in which case I do not know what to advise I am afraid, other than to try them and hope, or check out the other links on that page - to mailing lists for example

Just had another look at the site and maybe you should look at the Source tarballs, you may well find something suitable there for your situation.
