I installed the modem sucessfully on my Mandrake 9.1

However, after I dial to my ISP (with wvdial I can even hear the modem dialing through the speakers), the connection seems to be established

However, when I try to surf the web (read email, ping, browse normal pages...) absolutely no byte is transmitted to the internet

I will try installing the hsflinmodem-5.03.27.tar driver.

I tried the latest hsfmodem-6.03.00lnxt04072900full.tar driver, which is a free one that will only allow me to connect at 14.4

Regards

The excact chipset that my modem uses is this:

82801AA 810 Chipset AC'97 PCI Modem

Here is what I found on the site:

Modem is recognised and responds properly to AT commands, however responds with "NO DIALTONE" when dialling. ATH1 doesn't respond either. It is in a Dell Latitude C840

Therefore, the SmartLink driver is installed ok.
And the conexant driver seems to be installed ok as well.

Here is other info about the 82801CA/CAM Chipset

The modem is working fine on my Dell Latitude C840. The chip set of the modem is 82801CA/CAM, but the driver pctel-0.9.6 from Jan Stifter works with "configure --with-hal=i8xx". I had a problem with different versions of gcc, which could only be circumvented by using insmod with the force option: insmod -f pctel insmod -f ptserial

It's not the excact version as I have, I am going to test it with PC_Tel though

( post #8)

I just checked this out at http://pctelcompdb.sourceforge.net (Linmodems Database Search)

Seems like most of Intel's modem won't work on Linux (unless I download the Intel Drivers for them)


Intel HSP56 MR8170 82801 BA/BAM AC97 Not Working

Intel AC97 ? 82801 ?? Not Working (this is the one I have)

AC97 devnum = 8000FE00, devid = 8086/2486 i810 1.2.0 20010920 Not Working

However I noticed this as well:
PCTel Toshiba Satellite 1110-Z14 Intel Corp. 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Modem (rev 02) Not Working

I remember that I've successfully installed modem for two Toshiba Laptos from the Satellite series, so I guess my last attempt will be to install some Intel drivers

If that doesn't works, then I will give up

My last chance is to install a precompiled driver from PC_Tel, since the modules that come on that program, seem to be compilled with a different version of g++

MODEM WORKING!!

Dear LQ users

I finnaly made the modem work with a previous version (full 56 kb) of the Conexant Modem.

Thanks everyone for your support.

I don't remember were I downloaded the previous (56 k, fully working) version of the driver, but I'm sure that's the only one that works (the 14 kb demo driver didn't worked for me)

The modem won't work on kernel 2.4
at least that was when I tried it, in August 2004

It's a shame that many stuff (Like VMware, for example) don't work in 2.6.X kernels
