Today I installed linux mandrake 8.2 and am having some difficulties getting my modem to set up correctly.
I have an alcatel speed touch usb modem it is reckognised but it says I need the following
the alcatel microcode
download it at
and copy it to the mgmt.o in /usr/share/speedtouch
I tried that address and got no reply from my browser. I also tried a search on the main page. could someone tell me what is the microcode and where I get it.
I know that the modem is working as both lights are green telling me usb and adsl are both avaiable.
If someone could tell me what the above thing is and where I get it, what I use to download it and if I can in windows, how I transfer it to linux and where I put it.
I looked in the speedtouch.sh and the reference to microcode is
microcode="/usr/share/speedtouch/mgmt.o do I have to add whatever it is into this or do I is it a file to add somewhere.
sorry for asking loads but last time I tried getting this to work with red hat I gave up, at least this time it is nearly there but I need help with the final setup. I am keen to use linux so hope someone can help me.
