Win modems


Hello !
I am new to the Linux op. system.I use Red Hat 7.0 .
I have problems with my modem.I think I have a "win modem"(it is a Conexant modem).In Gnome I try to detect it but it seems not to respond.Can u give me an advice pls ? (beside the one I've already took into consideration...buying a "real" modem..).Thanks !

check out www.linmodems.org for more info if you can get your winmodem working or not. if you want a easy modem that works for sure.. i use a best data modem, or most isa internal hardware modems will work, and almost all external modems will work.

www.linmodems.org - it's the best resource for soft modem drivers for linux. i believe that there's a bit of support for the conexant winmodems - you may be in luck.

however, if that doesn't work, then you'll have to go with a new modem. ...that is, of course, unless you can write your own driver

yeah, i tend to watch these forums like a hawk during the day, since i hate my job, and i would rather help people out with linux related issues than my actual job.
