hi all,

i have NOT been able to use my SuSE 9.1 Pro with 3Com/USR internal modem to access the net at all.

so i went out and bought a pctel 789 chipset internal modem, which was supposed to work, only to find out that it works just with an OLDER kernel. (kernel 2.4)

i have tried an experimental driver from one of the sites, but no to avail.

at tis stage, i am considering getting an Aztech 56k usb external modem (um9100), but until i am sure tat it will work with my kernel, i will not plonk in my money again.

does anyone here have experience with the aztech modem i spoke about and SuSE 9.1 pro?

well i am left with accessing the net with Windows 98. sigh.

I have the same modem as theYinYeti: Olitec hardware external modem (Speed'Com V92-ready).

The reason being, my internal modem which is a Lucent LT WinModem just won't work, and I just didn't want the hassle getting it to work because I'm getting a desktop PC soon, so I'll have that same hassle again. Now with an external modem I won't.
