(as u can tell from my name I am a MAJOR n00b to LINUX!!!! BUT I REALLY! REALLY WANNA MOVE AWAY FROM WINDOWZE!!!!!!!!!!...The first step in the process would be getting my modem to work under linux so that I wouldnt have to go pay 50$ that would take me half-a year atleest to earn(I am only 15...no jobs available =( so i cant get the 50$ or so for a linux compatable modem! )

I will be Checking back about every day on this forum please someone help!!!!

Look for your modem on this page. I think you might be out of luck with it though, your best bet is to get an external modem or find an internal on that page that is supported in linux.

Unhappy hcf

I unfortunatly have a HCF modem as well..... however, the new drivers at MBSI only seem to work to a point......

I've managed to get the thing dialling, but it always gives a 'NO CARRIER' responce.

Has anyone had more luck than me with this? And if they have, could they please tell me where i'm going wrong?

my modem is a Diamond supraexpress 56i pro VCC, model SUP2760, vendorID 14F1, and deviceID 1033, if this helps.

Nowadays I connected two machines to the internet via dial-up modems. In both cases I did it as follows:
- I walked to and fro in the great Budapest for at least one week to find a good old ISA modem. I did not even try to buy any new models.
- I put the ISA modem into my computer and it worked. Installation was as easy as in Window$.
However, I must admit that in two shops I got ISA modems which gave me "no dial tone" and "no carrier" messages. I regarded them as faulty (they did not work in Window$, either), replaced them and decided not to visit those shops anymore.

Cannot get rid of that modem and find a real one?
I myself rather walked all through the great Budapest city for a week to find a good old, second-hand ISA modem and did not let a PCI one to take away my moods from Linux.
The installation of the ISA one was as easy in Linux as in Window$. (except that in the meantime I happened to get two faulty ISA modems, too which resulted in "no dial tone" and "no carrier" messages - but these modems did not work in Window$, either)

Make sure it's a serial modem, not USB because many USB modems are also winmodems!! I would reccommend going and getting an older internal 56k modem if you can find one, preferably ISA. Winmodems are just fine and dandy for Windows but there almost always is some funny thing that happens under linux that causes them to not work properly. Good luck.

Still no joy :/

Well, i've recently downloaded the drivers for HCF modems dated 25th april 2002, and i still seem to be getting the 'No Carrier' signal.

Has anyone as yet found a way round this, or does it mean, as i suspect it does, that my modem is not supported by the drivers?

Thanks for all the help so far btw
