I am having trouble with my Conexant HSF modem. I managed to get the proper RPM and installed it successfully on RHEL4.
Ran wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf and it said that it detected the modem at /dev/ttySFS0. But now when I dial, the modem picks up the line and dials with the dial-tone going on in the background.
You guessed right! :-). I can't connect to the net.
I had the same problem with this modem on WinXP, but I was able to solve the problem when I applied dialling rules by putting a "," (that created a pause of some sort for the modem to initialize dialling in the pulse mode).
In Kppp, when I query the modem I get the message "unable to create the lock file" even as root. I tried diabling the create lock file option. Still no luck.
I have been on this for the last couple of days and the only breakthrough so far has been in getting the modem installed.
