Downloaded which I hope is the right driver for my modem and it came as a tgz file.I extracted then read me said to run make clean make ham and make install I run all 3 and get this.

looks like the make went ok as well as the install, any error messages in your /var/log/messages file as to why ham didn't load? If you see "device not found" there in reference to attempted loading of ham then perhaps it is not the right driver.

On more than one occasion I've seen people go out and download and compile drivers which were provide and already installed, what modem do you have?

The modem has a Intel sticker on a chipset but the main chipset has the following on it. Ambient MD 1724T-11VC-B W039QC01-1064DE 0039 Taiwan-W Assume the Intel sticker due to Intel buying Ambient or whatever the facts are.This is the modem that I want to get a driver for. I was hoping to find one in a rpm format that I could just save to a floppy.You maybe right in that the driver I tried was wrong but I'm a linux newbie so when I downloaded it I dd so hoping it was the right one.Now what are the commands I want to run to clean my system of any signs of this driver..Now I do know from watching my system boot that yeah booting ham failed but one time it came up OK.But I'm going to look at this as though I did have the wrong driver.If anyone has used this modem oe knows of a driver for it please post a link.Now I do know there are some that maybe have all the same info but a letter might be different so curious if maybe a driver for one of them might work but basically someone find me a driver its driving me nuts.Also is this what they call a ham modem Thank You

You may indeed have the correct driver already (ham), I'm not saying you don't. I don't own that particular piece of hardware, but I'll keep you company until someone else comes along who does

If you open your /var/log/messages in a text editor just after a boot, and go to the very end and begin to scroll backwards looking for where ham gets mentioned it may tell you whether ham got loaded and if not, what the problem is, or at least give a clue that we can use to get to the bottom of this.

To tell you that, I need to see the Makefile and the section in it starting with "install:" and ending with the next word followed by a ":". then we'll formulate some commands to uninstall, unless of course when you look at the makefile you see an "uninstall:" option, sometimes they are there, not often though.

Ok thanx I'll get that info and post it Now if I find a driver for sa another distro would that driver work in mandrake or is it a case where each distro has to be written different so that I need one for mandrake and that is the only one that will work.There are so many drivers on intels site being a newbie I get lost lol Thanx

I went to intel's site and saw some linux downloads for ambient modems, which file did you download and use?

Yes, it's rare that a driver module compiled on one distro will work on another different distro, each must be compiled individually.

I'm going offline now, I'll check you tomorrow.

That was the same file I looked at, but I didn't see anything connecting it to those numbers you posted earlier, does this modem show up somewhere in the output if you type lscpi -v?

Also, it is certainly possible for you to have the correct module for the device and yet still get an error with "no such device" in it when the module load was attempted, certain module intitialization failures could cause that. Are there any other possibly relevant error messages in the same area where you saw the "device not found" error? most likely these would be there ahead of that error.

Well I downloaded scanmodem and here is text1 and the file I downloaded I assumed was the right driver as far as more errors I'll need to look. I did run lspci and it just comes back Communication controller: Ambient Technologies Inc HaM controllerless modem (rev 02).

=== Checking 1813 through chipset providers and modem assemblers ====

Vendor=8086 is Intel, Inc. producing HaM and 536ep host controller free (HCF) modems, the 537 soft modem
and AC'97 and MC97 controllers managing a varierty of non-Intel soft modem subSystems.
These subSystems will in have PCI_IDs assigned by the modem assembler, not Intel.
Download available drivers from: http://developer.intel.com/design/mo...rt/drivers.htm
Also check at: http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/resources.html
for early releases and perhaps Already compiled drivers for some Linux distributions


Vendor=1813 Ambient Tech was acquired by Intel with its HaM (Host assisted Modem) chipsets.
Intel-v92ham-453.tgz is the most recent update.
It is also the last code release for this older chipset (relates Intel maintainer Dorian Araneda).
Thus HaM code failures can be expected under the emerging 2.6.nn kernels
But under the 2.4.nn kernels, all HaM chipsets are supported,
with EXCEPTION of the odd PCI_ID 1813:4100 modems. For the explanation see message:

Well, it looks like you've got a positive id on the module and that you already have it compiled and installed, so, try to load it again and check the log to see if it will tell you why it's not loading.

Well, it sure wouldn't hurt to try it on the fcc site, but typically it's not really necessary to go there and check the exhibits if you can already see the chips on the device, it's usually much more useful for things like pcmcia cards or usb devices where you really don't want to disassemble the device just to see what chips are in it. never the less, here's the link to the fcc search form:
https://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws...Generic_Search

from everything you've posted so far I certainly am of the impression that you already had the right driver compiled and installed, seems to me we need to find out where in the whole process things are breaking down, the log is the first place to look.

I looked at the logs and only error I see is that device isn't found just like before.Everything else seems to be fine
