Modem set-up


My modem won't respond. It's a hardware modem for sure, and i tried all the /dev/ttyS and when i press quiery modem afterwards it says that modem isn't responding or something.
I use it nicely in windows XP pro on my other partition so i know its properly connected and stuff
Modem is NetoDragon 56k Voice Modem and it is attached to COM3 so i thought that might be a problem but i tried to identify the modem with all the COMs (from1to9 - /dev/ttyS0, /dev/ttyS1...) but with no success.
Im trying now downloading some linux dirvers for it(modem) but I'm afraid i can't download them from windows
I use Linux Mandrake 9
Any ideas???
Sorry if my English is bad a bit

I've had some success using minicom when having modem problems. Most distros come with it. More info at:

http://www.linux.com/howtos/Modem-HOWTO-11.shtml

Hint: Check your windows connection and see what port the modem is on (com 1, 2 , 3 etc.) On Linux com1=ttsy0 etc com2=ttsy1, etc.

It's on COM3 as i said but it wont work when i put it on ttsy2, ttyS2... or any other (i tried all) it wont work!
I tried using minicom but with no success, it's like my modem isn't connected properly and it is (it works in WinXP)

OK looked up your modem and you definitely need a driver.
It's available at:

http://netodragon.com/downloadpage.htm

I would try using windows, downloading to a floppy. Don't know if that'll work (I don't know squat about windows)
If it doesn't work, email me and I'll send it as an attachment.



Please post either way I'm curious to know

Hello SpiRiTcRuSheR,

Sorry I have to say this, but your Netodragon modem is a Winmodem (software modem).

Netodragon has a driver for there chipset, but it would give you some sleepless nights to get that working.

With kind regards,

Richard

I'll try it. Will be later in the week though. Need some info:
What kernel are you running?
What is the modem chipset?

To identify which kernel you have do:
uname -a ( in a console.)

UPDATE:
Found this on computing .net Anyone know if it's acuurate?
Thanks.

Claims that (a company?) called NetoDragon "formerly Motorola" Modem Technology are not accurate. NetoDragon is making what they call a 'MDV92XP' chipset supporting V.92. Their website has a driver download page with drivers for Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000, and XP. Caution: whois Netodragon? A Taiwan-based company whose front-page is a 90k jpg scanned image of a product sheet, plus a link to drivers. The webserver is in Canada. Sites selling these modems may call them NetDragon "formerly Motorola". This "formerly Motorola" part is inaccurate. (The NetoDragon or NetDragon modem is a soft (HSP) modem that includes a Motorola DAA (data access arrangement - the interface between the modem and the analog phone line), and a mis-named 'MDV92XP modem controller'.) The driver version available from NetoDragon's website is 2.92.04P - and it appears upon examination of the files, that NetoDragon is neither 'it's own' chipset, nor a 'formerly Motorola' chipset: NetoDragon/NetDragon is based upon the Smartlink chipset, and later drivers available from Smartlink should work.)
