The fact that your distro recognises the vendorinformation of a device doesn't mean it supports it or has the necessary drivers installed.
Looks like this is an internal modem and might be a winmodem. Are you sure it is supported?

No, i am not sure it supported. but as i have seen may threads they have done some workarounds on the same. so i though it should work. Yes, it's as winmodem bec'z it's working in windowsxp.

any suggestions?

Thanx for reply

Winmodem is not Linmodem

The fact that your modem works under windows doesn't mean it will work under linux. It's a driver problem and there aren't drivers available for all winmodems. You might try a google search with the name of your modem and something like "linux" and/or "driver" to find out if your particular modem is supported under linux. Rockwell and Lucent winmodems are supported, but only to a degree (Kernel 2.4 is supported, 2.6 not) and some drivers have been made available for a fee.
If no driver for your modem is available then either you write one() or you get what some would call a 'real' modem = external.

I know there's a utility to find out exactly what model you have, but don't remember either the name or the site I downloaded it from. Look around the board for a thread on Rockwell or Conexant modem drivers; I believe they mention it, and you might learn something about how to install the driver if you find it. Good luck!
