Question Red Hat Linux 9 & Conexant Dial-up Modem


To: ANYONE Who Can HELP!

RH9 found and 'configured' my Conexant RS56 HSF (that's what
it says it is) SoftK56 pci dial-up modem, only I'm not sure if it's
working. Is it possible for a modem to be configured but not have drivers installed? If so, how do get the drivers and actually set it up? (I also have SuSe 8.2 on the same machine, but as far as I know it isn't even detected)

WOULD APPRECIATE ANY HELP
THANKS!!!

Unless you got a newer version of RedHat 9 than me, I had to install the drivers manually.

Download the listmodem app here. If it say's unknown chipset your out of luck.

Since you already know it's an HSF get the drivers here.

Make sure you choose the right ones. "uname -a"

install them rpm -ivh hsflinmodem.blah.blah.rpm, then run hsfconfig from a command line. Then use kppp to dial out.

If you have Windows, you can always look up the model number in the system properties. Then download it, reboot to Linux and install like above. That's how I got my Conexant modem working.
