US Robotics USB Modem Problem


Has anyone managed to make a US Robotics USB dial-up modem work under Mandriva, or any other distro for that matter? I am aware that USB dial-up modems are probably among the most challenging of all hardware to set up on Linux, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

US Robotics USB Modem Problem

Thank you for your prompt and courteous reply. I apologise for not making it clear that I am engaged in battle with a dial-up modem, not an ADSL one. The comments I have seen around the Web suggest that this is a lost cause - do you have any alternative hardware suggestions?

If you are going to try another brand or model check out "HCL" on the menu bar above. If not give us the model number of the modem. I use an external serial used one. Any of the hardware type modems do not need drivers. I am not familiar with Mandriva, most distros have soft modem drivers to cover certain chip sets. This you will have to do your own research.
