I'm begging for help, I'm a fresh user and for the first time i have installed the mandrake linux 10.0, everything went quit well but i cant access Internet, i was wondering around, try to understand and explore the linux, when i saw no signs of the modem, i looked in the Internet and i didn't find nothing to help me, please can anyone sot this out for me???
I live in UK and i have the BT Voyager 100 dsl USB modem, how can i install and configure the modem, so i can use the internet thru linux??
Please Help me!!!
I tried to install linux and use my BT Voyager 100 modem, but after about a week of trying i gave up Apparently there are a set of drivers for a different modem that uses the same GlobalSpan Chipset that does allow it to work under linux, but im afraid thats all i know
I ended up going with a different ISP and they sent me a Sagem F@ST 800 E2T, which after a bit of work (and allot of help off someone here) got it working under Slackware9.1 (which is what im using now )...
Sorry my post doesnt help you much, but i would think about getting a different modem
Hi there, jens, thanks for the link, i believe its gona be very useful, but i cant login as the root, how can i do it, or where can i read and learn about it??
Is there any guides for very very newbies???
Hi again, is there any way to login as root insted of login as normal user and use the 'su' command on console????
It will be very nice, if i could use the grafic mode
By the way, already install the modem, just need to find out how can i start the connection, since the modem dont even sync
I need help, i cant do anything with linux, after i installed the eci drivers 0.8, finally, the modem does not start, i run some serch and i found something about cheking some files, so far so good, well not quite, when i went to the path it gave me an error, you dont have permission to access the file, WTF??? Yea, its right, i also went to /var/log/messages and saw NO MODULE TO USB DEVICE, damm, i cant do anything, all i want is to put internet working, so i can explore, use and play some games with linux, is that so insane????
Please, im begging, is there some real step by step tutorial, guide, manual?????
Im really a beginner, but, i think i deserve a chance to work with linux, dont i????
Lets say, i dont know how to do anything in linux, what can i do and how???
See??? i really need help
Thanks, i'll be cheking for anwsers frequently, and trying!!!!
I have a BT voyager 100 and have just installed mandrake 10.0! The idea is to use the linux box as a router for by business network. Any way iam new to linux aswell wondering if you got anywhere installing it?
I had the same trouble getting my BT Voyager to work with Mandrake.
I managed to get the modem to work using the drivers on the flashtux website (link posted previously) but I found the connection to be very slow and would drop out every now and then. I tweaked and tested all I could but I couldn't seem to rectify the problem. I put it down to the drivers being development versions.... So, to solve this I got an ADSL (not a broadband) router and using the ethernet card in my system managed to connect that way.
Mandrake seems to prefer this connection; I didn't have to install any software or drivers to get the connection up and running; just configured the router and it was detected and installed by Mandrake automatically on boot.
The router also has a hardware firewall too, which is really spiffy...
