x7005q2 adsl usb wan modem

Absolutely the same thing here. startmodem gives error message - inappropriate ioctl.
xavi 7005q2 , even if eci-adsl site says its supported using nortek 2021 and synch bin 53.
all thats changed is the modem lights indicate a synch. both lights are green with this . life is upbeat one light at a time, but no more lights left and i still cant logon! :-(
