ok here is a step by step of how I got the modem to work
1. download source for driver at
get the latest version should be PcTel - 0.9.6
2.Change your /usr/src/linux-x.x directory to /usr/src/linux
3.Unzip and run ./configure --with-hal=?
use /.configure -with-hal-list to view a list.
4. run make
5. run make install
6. Change your kernel settings to enable kernel module loading, ppp, PC style hardware, and EISA suport and also you may need to add ppp suport for async serial ports and disable symmetric multi-processing suport ( i have symmetric multi-processing suport and it works both ways for me)
7. run insmod -f pctel
8. run insmod -f ptserial
( BOth insmod comands may show errors but everything should be ok)
9.setup kppp, The modem port should be /dev/mode which points
to /dev/ttys15 , use software flow control, cr line termination
( LF and LF/CR line termination makes kppp jam up when i use it)
10. setup the rest on your own ( phone number, isp name, etc. etc.
OK thats all i have you can e-mail me if you like and i can try to help but i am still a
but i can do my best
