Unhappy How do I configure my USR ISA/PnP modem in M9.1?


I have a USR 33.6k internal PnP modem that is not auto-recongized by M9.1. How do I configure this modem so it is loaded during boot?

I've gotten it to work by going through the DrakConnect configuration wizard, but no info shows up in the Mandrake control center, and when I reboot I have to start all over again.

Any ideas?

(FYI....running Win98/M9.1 dual boot.)

You dont. Because its a win modem. You now head off to the store to buy a modem that isnt made for WinBlows, and actually has all the hardware it needs. I'd suggest an external, non-usb modem.

OK, please correct me if I'm wrong.....

I am able to connect using this modem in linux, which would mean that it's not a winmodem (unless I am misunderstanding what a winmodem is). I just can't get the config to reload during reboot, and I am unable to see any config info inside HardDrake in the Mandrake control center.

So once again, what is the proper method of configuring this modem to load correctly during boot? If you still think it is a winmodem, could you please explain why?

If it isn't a winmodem, then try opening kppp ( Networking - Remote Access), and you should be able to create a new connection, using your modem. Click the Setup box, then go to Device. You will need to select each possible choice (unless you already know where it is located) - then try the Modem Tab and try Query Modem. Once you've found it, try Modem Commands to make sure - you should see some stuff about the Modem then.
Once you've done that, your connection should be saved - hopefully.

PS - I understand why previous posters thought it was a win modem. The only internal isa USR I've seen was also a winmodem, but it looks like you're lucky

Shouldn't I be able to see the modem config details inside HardDrake? It lists the modem, but doesn't give any info (blank).

Same problem with the ISA/PnP soundcard. Sound works, but doesn't show up in any of the config progs.

Short answer is I'm not sure, but probably not. HardDrake relies on lspci - only lists pci, agp cards etc.
