Yes I did that.and in addition "modprobe usbserial".no effect at all.It is even listed when I do lsmod. But when I try to use kppp the modem is not responding.It says modem ready but there are no lights indicating activity.
Then I removed the modem from the usb to serial converter.It still says "modem ready" so it is not detecting the modem itself but instead it is detecting the converter circuit as a modem.
I confirmed this when I disconnected the usb to serial conv.The "modem ready" signal disappeared.I get a "unable to query modem".
the usb to serial converter works perfectly on xp BTW.
