I posted this last night, on this very forum. (By the way, I have NEVER been able to connect to the internet using mcc, I have always had to manually configure the modem)
There is a howto that comes with mandy in
or at least there is in mine.
I got the speedtouch tar from
I just did a make make install and it worked.
To get it working originally in 8.2 took me days. I left this message at mandrake expert;
There are two INCOMPATABLE drivers for the Alcatel SpeedTouch ADSL USB modem. One, from Alcatel, uses pppoatm.so and has to be compiled into the kernel. The other one, from Benoit Papillault, doesn't. Reading more than one howto, I ended up trying to install both.
You need speedmgmt.tar.gz from
which you don't install, you only need the micro code, and
I followed the howto, and it still didn't work. At the bullitin board
I found the solution, which was to delete /usr/sbin/speedmgmt (the Alcatel Driver which I installed) off the system. Now, here I am using linux to access the internet via an ADSL modem.
