Unhappy Modem problems


Aparently my Lucent Win Modem will not work with My Red Hat 7.1 on my other partition... Anyone have any idea show i could make it work?... My computer does not allow any modems besides PCI and no dsl/cable providers in my area...

there are available drivers for some lucent winmodem models - www.linmodems.org should have them or have links to them. if you don't have a supported model, then there are hardware pci modems. i'm using a US Robotics PCI modem as i type.

shurrup isa.. i know this one..!

maybe... :-S

ok, i found that the lucent drivers. you have installed the newest lucent driver i take it... create a device that isn't searched for by linux. You should have a /dev/ttyLT0 which is, as you can guess, the Lucent Technology device file. use a soft link:

ln -s /dev/ttyLT0 /dev/modem

then try and find it using 'wvdialconf' in a terminal window.

if you've not got the drivers

sorted... hopefully

i have already told you how to set it up.

once you've installed the rpm, tell us if something goes wrong.

if you don't know how to install the fil, run

rpm -iv thatfile.rpm

Red face well

ln -s /dev/ttyLTO /dev/modem
wouldnt work so i did
ln -sf /dev/ttyLTO /dev/modem
and that worked
i tried to run wvdialconf and it wouldnt told me i needed the address to a conf so i did
wvdialconf wvdial.conf
and it started doing it then it said no modem was found
could it be because my modem is on com3?

well i've the driver didn't make the ttyLT0 device then obviously it won't work, and if you use the -f option then it obviously will work, i.e. it'll make the link, but the link won't work.. cos the device you'er pointing it to doesn't exist!!

it should of course be LT[zero] not LT[theletterbeforeP] if that's what happened... but naturally check you HAVE the device first!

use

ls -l /dev/ttyLT* to see IF that's the way that the driver is installed.. i don't even know if it is.. but it was for me, using a different version of the driver. 5.99d i think.
