I did lsmod and I can see the slmdm module installed. How do I configure the modem?
Any help in this regard is appreciated
congrats, u finally installed it
well, usually the modem installation will create a soft-link '/dev/modem' to point to the configured modem device eg. '/dev/ttySHSF0'
u can dial-up to an ISP using KPPP (internet dialer for KDE) and make sure it is using either of the devices above. i believe there is also a 'Query Modem' option in KPPP to see if sending of modem instruction works ...
u can also use System Tools > Network Device Control to set up a modem dialup connection
