by "real modem" you mean one that's hardware-based, right??

I have tried the newer driver, but it didn't work either.

well, it would seem to me like the issue is IRQ 5 - i think...

what's the (properly functioning) IRQ layout in your windows look like??

i've done some more googling and saw plenty of issues with interrupts (on linux) on the nforce2 boards... seems like it wouldn't hurt to give the "noapic" kernel option a shot... you can put it in the "append" part in your bootloader... if it's lilo make sure to run "lilo" after editing lilo.conf, then reboot and see what happens... the line in question should look like this (of course you might have other options appended):
Code:
append="noapic"
you could also throw the anti-acpi option in there, although i'm not sure if you're using the bareacpi.i kernel or the bare.i one...
Code:
append="acpi=off noapic"
but i'd try with just the noapic option first...

Same problem

Hello!

I am having the some problem with my modem dial-up connection. I am stay connected about 8 minutes and get disconnected, and in those 8 minutes, just the header section of any pages is loaded rightly.

Reading the answers in this topic, I have found that:

Quote:
/var/log/syslog
... stores the connection logs. win32sux said to search for "INPUT DROP".

Here lies my problem. This file doesn't have anything like this. My modem is an Intel 536ep V.92, maybe it's log files are stored in another address, but I don't know where too...

Someone has any idea?

Thank you!

Hi, everybody.

I am also having this problem. Whenever I connect at around 50k, the connection will work great for a minute or two, and then just flatline. When I set it to 38kbps instead, I am able to connect reliably for as long as I want, but, of course, it's slow. I've tried using both KPPP and wvdial. I've tried different init strings, although there's no telling whether I've tried the "right" init string. The modem is a USR 5610B V.92 internal 56k. I'm very interested in finding the solution to this, as I've been dealing with it for quite some time now.

Thanks for your input.

--Dane
