Hi there Gang,
I am glad I came upon this Website today, and hope you all can help me. I am a Windows Convert-to-be, working on building my first Linux system, and I seem to be stuck. Though I have followed the steps on the Ubuntu Website for connecting to the Internet via a dial-up modem, I seem to still be struggling with this challenge. I have already run ScanModem on my machine, and the ModemData.txt tells me that I have a VIA82XX-Modem, VIA8237.
It also states
Communcations Controller: Via Technologies, INC. AC'97 Modem Controller
I understand that I need a driver for this modem, in order to make it operate and become visible to Ubuntu, yet I am struggling to locate that driver. I was hoping that there may be some kind souls here, that would be able to help me find the driver, and configure it to my machine. I am dying to use Linux as my primary operating system, I just need to learn how to use it as well as I know that "Other" one.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Sorry Gang, forgot to add that I have installed the newest Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop Editon.
