how to connect to Internet with Linux ?
 
Hello Smiley

how to connect to Internet with Linux ? :)

my modem is Toshiba Software Modem AMR :rolleyes:

Dommy 08-05-2005 02:58 AM

When in doubt let Google be your friend.

This quote from linmodems.org might help

"The driver i used is "Smart Link Soft Modem for Linux"
(http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/pack...m-2.7.9.tar.gz)
Just follow the instructions in the README file."

If your not happy with installing your own drivers then it might be easier to buy a seperate modem and connect via the serial port either way you'll need to use kppp or similar to do the dialup and connection to your ISP

Have Fun

now what should i do :scratch:

tuxdev 08-05-2005 07:08 PM

setup dialing to use wvdial, kppp, or pppsetup. I like wvdial better cause it was smart enough to work for me.

this massege show for me "The modem is busy"

Dommy 08-05-2005 11:29 PM

Make sure your modem cable is attached the modem is turned on.

Some software regards an open serial socket as the same as the device is busy although you may want to check that no other program is accessing the serial port at the same time

00:1f.6 Modem: Intel Corp. 82801DB (ICH4) AC'97 Modem Controller (rev 03)

Dommy 08-06-2005 05:57 AM

Sorry, confused with another thread.
You have the internal modem correct?
the compilation output in post#3 , is from compiling the source code I gave you the link to in post#2 is this correct?

Hello :)

That's right

Dommy 08-08-2005 01:49 AM

From the README file in package:

6. Config modem country.

You can configure your current country by using module parameters
'country' or 'country_code'.
Add 'options' directive line to file '/etc/modules.conf':

options slmdm country=<MyCountry>

, for example

options slmdm country=USA

, or use module parameter while module loading:

# modprobe slmdm country=<MyCountry>

Use 'slver -c' to see list of all supported countries and their
codes (utility 'slver' may be found in package directory).

Getting Started
===============

After successful installation and configuration modules will be loaded on
demand if you are using 'kmod' in linux kernel.

Also you can load modules by hand:

# modprobe slamrmo

if you are using AMR/CNR/PCI modem, or

# modprobe slusb

if you are using SmartUSB56 Modem.



you can check if a module is loaded by typing lsmod |grep slamrmo

if the module is loading without error then startup kppp and under config there is a tab which allows you to test the connectionwith the modem , so try that and see what happens.

Although the README suggests you can use this package with a kernal newer than 2.4 it might be worth your while sending a query to support@smlink.com to verify this as there might be some compatibility issues between 2.4 and 2.6

Hello ..

i added options slmdm country=KUWAIT to /etc/modules.conf and it's like this now :

Code:

alias char-major-212 slamr
alias char-major-213 slusb
options slmdm country=KUWAIT

but when i do "modprobe slamrmo" it's show this massege for me : "FATAL : Module slamrmo not found."

Dommy 08-09-2005 09:00 PM

Here's a silly question are you running a 2.4 kernal or 2.6?

Looks like your modules are not in the system search pah , I've had this happen previously , if you can find were your other modules are loading from then try and copy slamrmo there and see what happens.
