Lucent - CELLPIPE ADSL MODEM Driver for Linux


Hi,
I am looking for a Lucent Cellpipe 20A ADSL modem driver. I contacted the company but not received a proper reply(Even whether they have linux drivers ot not).

I am migrating from WindowsXp to Suse Linux but without this driver I cannot proceed.


Can you please help me.....

Hello Surejg,

Why you need a driver, your Lucent Cellpipe 20A modem/router has an Ethernet interface. You probably have it already setup?

Write down the IP addresses from your Windows XP installation and install Linux fill in the same numbers and you are online.

For some more info look at http://adsl.yoll.net/setting-up-adsl...-08-Linux.html

With kind regards,

Richard

Dear Richard,
Thank you for the help but I didnot understand fully because I donot know much about network.

The model that I use(Lucent Cellpipe 20A) is a dial up ADSL Modem(Donot know whether i can configure it as ethernet).

Could you pleas tell me the configuration steps.

Sorry for bothering you much..

Thanks in advance.

that is a standard aDSL modem that handles ATM bridged traffic.

http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-Lucent_C..._20A_300301009

what that means is you do not have to use a 3rd party client like winpoet to connect via PPPoE or PPPoA (point to point over ethernet/atm) so you can just set your connection up like a cable connection as far as your *nix box is concerned. just have it use DHCP to pull the IP and you will be set.

Hi,
My ADSL Modem doesnot support Ethernet. Hence I think I need to configure it as PPOA but I donot know how to install the driver and how to go about it in Suse9.1

Can you please help me......

how does if connect to your computer? via a network cable or via a USB cable?

if its via USB, then call your ISP and have them bring you out a real modem that connects via network cable.

http://fcit.usf.edu/network/chap4/chap4.htm

that is a good pic, of a network cable. it looks like a big phone cord with 8 wires instead of 2 or 4 like a phone cord will have.

these plug into NIC (network interface cards) and work native in *nix with zero mucking around. all 3 flavors of aDSL are supported now in *nix. PPPoE, PPPoA, and BridgedATM. the 1st 2 require a bit of configuration, but *nix has the built in programs for them, then 3rd requires nothing at all except to tell *nix to pull a DCHP or Static IP. that will depend on how you have things setup with your ISP>

to configure ur modem u will probably need a driver (as u will have to change the vpi and vci to suit your isp) firstly I would check with your isp that it is pppoa and not pppoe as both methods of configuring are completely different, u can also get the vpi and vci encapsulation numbers from them. U will have to configure the pppoa after u have installed the driver for your modem. there are drivers available for your modem check out this link and u should be able to d/load from there http://eciadsl.flashtux.org/modems.php?modem=56. BTW usually with the modem driver u get a readme file which will tell u how to configure. post back if u r still having probs :-)

Hi All,
Thank you for the support.

I downloaded the driver from http://eciadsl.flashtux.org. When I tried to install I faced following problems.

1. I am using SUSE9.1. However The driver I downloaded was for mandrake/redhat as no driver for suse was available. Please clarify is it compatible.(I am very new to Linux)
2. When I tried to execute the rpm file using the command (rpm -i eciadsl-usermode-0.10-1.i386.rpm),
I got an error "rp-pppoe is need". (I think, My modem-Lucent Celpipe20A USB, doesnot support PPOE)
3. I downloaded the driver of rp-pppoe but when I executed, it gave an error, "Problem at ./configure".
4. I read that, I may need to put latest kernal to install ADSL as there was some bug.


I am using SUSE9.1 Personal. If I get SUSE9.2 all the above, problems can be solved? If yes, can I download it from somewhere......

Apologies for asking silly questions....

use the serial port on it, and the Linux tool for HyperTerminal. I have a cellpipe, and it works fine in Linux.

Hello Surejg,

It looks like there are more versions of the Lucent Cellpipe 20A the one I know of doesn have a USB port?

So maybe you can give somewhat more details of the mode/router

With kind regards,

Richard

Dear Richard,
The Lucent Cellpipe 20A is with USB but it doesn't have a Ethernet port.

I was using SUSE9.1 Personal edition. May be because of that I couldn't follow the instuctions. So I migrated to REDHAT 9.0.

I followed the following steps.
1. Downloaded eciadsl-usermode-0.10-1.i386.rpm and kept it in a tmp directory
2. executed (rpm -i eciadsl-usermode-0.10-1.i386.rpm) and it was successfull
3. I configured it using eciadsl-config-tk
4. But when I used eciadsl-probe-device. THE MESSAGE IS "Device not found". I re-plugged the modem still unable to detect the modem.

Can you please tell me how to proceed.

Hello Surejg,

To be honest it was for me a long time ago that I used Redhat 9, one thing I can add to this is that several of my external USB devices did not work with Redhat 9 and work out-of-the-box in Fedora Core 3.

I therefore want to advice you to install Fedora Core 3, or Suse 9.2 this two distributions have a good support for USB.

Maybe somebody can help you with Redhat 9, but my know-how is really limited to some newer distributions.

With kind regards,

Richard

Hello Surejg,

I found out that the following USB ADSL modems Archtek UGW-8000, Asus AAM6000UG, Atlantis I-Storm, Cypress Globespan G7000, GreatSpeed GS-U210G Neo, GVC BB039, Ipmdatacom Webpower, Nortek 2020 model #1, Nortek 2020 model #2, Wisecom ws-ad80usg, Siemens Santis model #1, Siemens Santis model #2, Solwise SAR100, Solwise EA100, Supergrass Surfer, Telewell TW-EA100, Topcom Webr@cer 850, Turbocomm EA100 use the same USB chipset and USB ID as the Lucent CellPipe USB-20A.

So if you find a driver for one of the above USB ADSL modems, they probably work.

Good luck,

Richard
