Man I have tried for three days straight trying to figure out how to get online. First I had to establish if I had a "winmodem" ...pretty sure I do
Then find out what chip set I have, which I still can't figure out.
My PC is: (Dell 8250)
My internal modem is: (Broadcom BCM4212 v.90 56k)
My distro is Fedora
I've plowed countless web pages.
I tried the 'scanModem' program but cannot get it to work. to determine the chip set.
I have also tried 'listModem' which returned multiple unknowns..arg#@*#&
I even opened the machine to physically look at the modem to find out the chipset but can't see it because the sound card is in the way.
I'm gonna lose it here..can anyone help me out or point me in the right direction ? I'd really appriciate it.
Would an external modem solve my problem ?
