Question RH 7.3 and Modem Volume


Recently installed RedHat 7.3 and everything is great except my modem. It works fine just that it makes a lot of noise dialing my isp. I have tried turning the volume down (LOW) and off int the Gnome diapul thing (rp3/internet-druid) but this has no effect. The modem is an external US Robotics 56k and worked silently under RH 7.0 through 7.2.

Thanks

add M0 to your init string, or adjust the knob on the side of the modem

My Modem on has a power switch (I had thought of that), but I have no idea how you:

add M0 to your init string

Gnome: run pppsetup

wvdial: edit /etc/wvdial.conf

minicom: hit ^Ao (or possibly ALT-o), then select "Modem and Dialing"

Tried adding the M0 (not MO?) using minicom, editing wvdial.conf and neat, all 3 ways results in a silent modem, but one that is not dialing out! So what now? Below is my wvdial.conf, which may help:

[Modem0]
Modem = /dev/ttyS1
Baud = 115200
SetVolume = 0
Dial Command = ATDT
Init1 = ATZ
FlowControl = CRTSCTS
[Dialer ntlworld]
Dial Prefix = *
Phone = *
Password = *
Username =*
Area Code = *
Stupid Mode = 1
Inherits = Modem0

Tried adding M0 in Init1, neat adds Init3=M0 after Stupid Mode. (I've obviously not included the password!)

Thanks

M0 = M zero

in wvdial.conf, add init2 = AT&F1&M0 on the line following init1.

No joy, still screaming (me and the modem) when dialing the isp.

Oh well
