DLink DSL-200 USB modem install - How to?


Hi,

I've seached the forums and found lots of threads on ADSL modems etc, but nothing on the DLink DSL-200 USB modem.

I have installed Mandrake v 9.0 (using KDE), but being new to Linux, I do not know how to go about installing my modem. When I go through the network/ADSL setup, I find my modem model is not listed.

How do I go about getting drivers for it and installing it. It's a breeze in Windows, but in Linux I am clueless.

Please help.

Have you tried www.google.com/linux? From my own experience (with a different modem) Mdk 9 doesn't find USB modems correctly or even very well. I would say that your best bet is to install a network card and to connect your modem that way. Assuming your modem allows that.

No such luck at www.google.com/linux? . No suitable search results found.

Surely someone out there uses the same model ADSL modem with Linux???

Please help
