Modem Wars
 
These are the voyages of a winmodem in linux, a success story. I love Debian, but until recently I couldn't connect to the net. I downloaded the linuxant (free) and now i'm trying to hack it. Until a week ago, only root could surf the internet. Then I discovered pon/poff and everything is ok. Now I'm trying to develop my owm driver for conexant modems(or at least hack them)...

To boldly go where no TCP/UDP/IP packet has gone before!

I also spent 2 weeks trying to get something with my USR 56K int modem.

But it worked! Now I use wvdial to connect.

what model is you computer? I've been trying to get my conexant modem working, but then when I run pppconfig, it will not find my modem, help?

MS/Linux, you'll probably have to use
Code:

lspci
to find out your modem's I/O port and IRQ (or you may find them out from Windows, for example).

But first, make sure your modem is not a winmodem (i.e. it is possible to make it work in Linux): www.linmodems.org and TLDP's Linux Hardware Compatibility HOW-TO (www.tldp.org)

Then
Code:

cd /dev;ls ttyS*
to list your serial ports.
If the last one is ttyS3, for example, create a new one:
Code:

./MAKEDEV ttyS4
.
Then use setserial to set the port and IRQ:
Code:

setserial ttyS4 uart=<put your UART here, I don't remember it :D port=<put your port here, with 0x in front if it doesn't have it irq=<irq here>
(You can check out the UART of other ports, e.g.
Code:

setserial ttyS0
will display you the UART (and many other things) about COM1.).

Then use pppconfig and it will detect your modem.

Ok, I used the scanModem utility, and it said that my chipset does work. I downloaded the hsfmodem *.deb file from linuxant, and it installed fine. However, in dmesg it said something about a bit cleared, set perhaps by a buggy trident driver. Thoughts? I'll have to get the actual dmesg readout for you

You do that!

here's my dmesg, (only the part pertaining to my modem)
Quote:

hsfmc97ali: cleared ALI_AC97_AUDIO_BUSY bit, set by buggy trident driver?
ttySHSF0 at I/O 0x8800 (irq = 3) is a Conexant HSF softmodem (PCI-10b9:5457-103c:0024)
