Conexant HCF Modem


I am having problems with my Conexant HCF modem, I have Red Hat 8.0 (2.4.18-14) and have downloaded the drivers for the modem. My modem does not dial out, but KPPP recognizes it. Is there another dial up utiltility that I could use?

Did you use an rpm or compile the *tar.gz. If you use the rpm you have to have the same processor architecture as your kernel.

I recommend that compile/install the *tar.gz as it will then match your kernel.

The other issue is the kppp setup. The conexant driver sets up a symbolic link from /dev/modem -> conexant driver. You should setup kppp using /dev/modem and be able to query the modem under setup.

It works very well once it is setup so stay at it.

Thanks anyway, I found the problem was in hcfpciconfig auto-selecting of the drivers, all I did was select the driver manually and the modem worked.

Unhappy hcf modem

I had the hcfpciconfig program run to setup the modem. I have to Active the network device to online. Is there a way of configing a dailer? If so please give me step-by-step.

hey everybody,

I have been trying to get my modem to dial out for the last three days. I have a conexant, and I have downloaded the appropiate drivers and installed them. Originally my modem was /dev/ttyS1. I can use kppp to recognize the modem, and it will query, but it will come back with empty querys. Also, when I check the terminal in kppp (modem), it initializes, and says modem is ready. When I tell the kppp to connect, it attempts to initialize, and just appears to lock up, or just never initialize. Also, I have tried using hcfpconfig, and that changed the link that I created for the modem (/dev/modem) from /dev/ttyS1 to /dev/ttySHC0. kppp does not recognize, and the only thing it will recognize for me is when I either select /dev/modem when it is linked to /dev/ttyS1 or selecting /dev/ttyS1 itself. Can someone please help. I have to be able to connect to the internet somehow using Linux for my college classes that start on the 3rd. I can use windows well, but I am 'sort of' new to linux...used quite a bit before, but always on a LAN. Can't wait to hear from you guys...

Greg

You need hcfpciconfig to work correctly and set up the /dev/modem link for it work work well with Kppp. Did you run the config as your user or as root? Try root.
