Loaded Fedora 8 onto old Windows PC, How do I use the wireless modem?
I am an absolute Linux newbie, and don't understand half of the terms used...
I loaded Fedora 8 onto what was a Windows XP box. The OS runs fine, but I want to connect to the internet. XP used to use a BT Voyager 1055 modem plugged into a USB port; I would like to be able to use it again under Linux if possible.
I gather that I need the correct driver to be able to talk to the modem. How do I get and install the correct one? Would it be simpler to buy a new modem - one that Fedora can identify and use "out of the box"?
Point your dialer to that device, and it should work. If your dialing program won't go to that device, you can symlink it. As root, type in "ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/modem". Replace the ttyUSB0 with whatever your device name is.
