Modem Problem


Hi again, Y'all.

Ok, I got the new modem. USR2976. On startup, Linuz ran the configuration wizard so it knows it's there. Problem is when I setup may account info and tried to dialup, nothing! Query modem says "Modem does not respond"

AAARGGGH!

some times the auto probing locks up modems, (it does with my external usr anyway),you my have to log out/in to clear it, or you may try the actual /dev/ttys(x) port instead of the /dev/modem symlink.
