Smile Fedora Core Dialup


Alright, got a dual boot working just fine with Windows XP with Fedora Core. Everything works just fine, except for my dial up connection. Yes, shocking, dialup, I know. When I tell Fedora to autodetect the modem, it can't find it. I then tried quering the modem manualy, but it couldn't find it.
Any thoughts on why this is happening, and how would we set this up?
Thanks

Hi

Welcome to LQ. First of all, we need to know what kind of modem it is (internel, externel, etc.) If it is an internal modem (PCI), run this from the command line:

$ lspci

Post the output of that and we can advise you better.

odd..

Yes, it's an internal PCI card, but when I tried the lspci command, bash said that command wasn't found.

There we go

I didn't think of trying that. Here's the info that printed.

00:0b.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy (rev 04)
00:0b.1 Input device controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy MIDI/Game port (rev 04)

You probably don't need all of that, but I figured I'd post it all just in case. I also ran a script I had found at linmodems.technion.ac.il called scanModem.gz. The information I got from that is listed below.
FYI, I'm also running Fedora 3.

Providing detail for device at 00:0e.0 with

It's working

We got it working. When you go to http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/first.html they'll give you a script called scanModem. That will print out information about your modem's chipset and what drivers you need to get for it. The one that I needed was available at Linuxant.com.

I wouldn't have even had to post here if I had just read through all the documentation that printed out from the script. But now anyone else who reads this will know where to go for a solution, and I found a good forum. :P
