Question 3cp5610a modem problems


Brand new linux user. I installed mandrake linux 9.1. I am having problems getting my usr modem to work. It is on bus 0, device 11, function 0 , irq 11, i/o 0xd400 [0xd407].

I got setserial added. I tried running "setserial /dev/ttys0" all the way thru ttys9 and all said unknown file or directory or something like that. I am sure I am doing something wrong, but have only been on linux for 1 day so far. I finally got tired of booting into windows and looking stuff up, then booting into mandrake and trying it, then back.

The modem is listed in other/unknown in the hardware section. There is a bunch of other devices in there too .. my winmodem, sblive joystick, crx1750u usb cdrw (it has an icon on desktop and works though), usb receiver, wingman extreme digital joystick, sidewinder gamevoice, and wingman cordless gamepad. I havent tried using any of these devices except the cdrw. Will they work even though they are listed there?
I ask only because I have been using windows since 3.1, and if the device manager ever shows a device as unknown in windows, it isn't working.

Last question for now. When I leave mandrake, the next time I boot windows me, it boots to the blue screen right before I login and freezes there. I can shut it down (power button for 4 secs) then restart and it runs fine after I run scandisk. It always does the same thing the first time I go to windows.

Question next issue

Ok, thanks for the link. That worked. I got it added anyway. I was neglecting to capitalize the s in ttyS1. Not used to this linux stuff yet.

I then went into control panel and tried to set up network/internet connection. I unchecked network and hit modem, tried both ttyS4 (the one that it is listed on) and dev/modem, but both come out failed to connect, etc. How do I set it up so that I can dial out and connect to the internet. I never heard any dialing or anything either.
Going to go try a couple more things now. This is in mandrake 9.1 btw.

I would use KPPP. Go to internet in your main menu and you should see KPPP under that. Then just set it up. Choose your /dev/modem if you linked it or the actual /dev/ttySx. Add your ISP info and try it out.
