modem detection problem
Tried searching the forums before posting here.
I'm trying to get my Netcomm Mega-i Modem (external) working with RH 8. My kernel version is 2.4.18.
My modem is on Com 1 , however when I try to configure a connection using the GUI configuraiton tool, i get a message that says 'modem not detected.'
I tried running wvdialconf , but no modem was detected again.
I ran the following command : setserial -bg /dev/ttyS* to get a listing of devices attached to my serial ports and RH reports something on Com1.
when I go echo atz > ttyS0 , I can get the modem LEDs to blink..., but thats as far as it goes....
I have an ethernet card installed, which I disabled thinking that there might be a hardware conflict, but to no avail...
When RH is booting, I get a message that says "Unable to load ppp0, error code 8 "......
Really confused....can someone please help???....
