Hi, I am new to linux and enjoying the experience so far. Attempting to connect a serial modem I have run wvdialconf and got the following.
Scanning your serial ports for a modem.
WvModem<*1>: Cannot set information for serial port.
ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 2400 baud, next try: 9600 baud
ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 9600 baud, next try: 115200 baud
ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- and failed too at 115200, giving up.
Modem Port Scan<*1>: S1 S2 S3 S4 S5 S6 S7 S8
Modem Port Scan<*1>: S9 S10 S11 S12 S13 S14 S15 S16
Modem Port Scan<*1>: S17 S18 S19 S20 S21 S22 S23 S24
Modem Port Scan<*1>: S25 S26 S27 S28 S29 S30 S31
Sorry, no modem was detected! Is it in use by another program?
Did you configure it properly with setserial?
Please read the FAQ at http://alumnit.ca/wiki/?WvDial
I then tried to run setserial and got.
steve@steve--E5510:~$ sudo setserial -G /dev/tty
[sudo] password for steve:
Cannot get serial info: Inappropriate ioctl for device
run dmesg on the serial port returns.
steve@steve--E5510:~$ dmesg | grep tty
[ 0.000000] console [tty0] enabled
[ 2.562395] 00:07: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
From GtkTerm (serial port terminal) I can connect and run all at commands including the following.
AT command returns OK
AT+IPR? returns +IPR: 9600
I can dial with ATD<my phone no.>
I should add that before running wvdialconf I manually edited wvdial.conf with the correct settings for the modem. Also I checked that I was a member of the dialout group.
I am using ubuntu 13.10 and have also loaded and tried 14.04 just to see if it may have been version specific.
As noted earlier I am new to Linux but have connected many modems of all types over the years.
Any ideas and help will be very appreciated.
