Thanx a lot explosive & RockmanExe,

I have followd your steps and done it i was really happy.

but one problem here,

when i try to dial I got following error :

----------------------------------------------
The pppd daemon died unexpectedly
Ext status:19
---------------------------------------------
when i select modem /dev/modem [it show modem ready]

but when i select /dev/ttyS0,S1,S2 [it show sorry, can't not open]

so i have to select /dev/modem to dialup

now, what happen with this? can u help me please?

and one more thing when i try with 'wvdial' it found the modem, but did not create file under /etc/wvdial.conf.

Please help me....

Thank you once again for helping me ......

Actually, you must select /dev/modem into kppp's configuration dialog. About disconnecting with that error, it happens to me sometimes, but is mostly an isp related problem in my case.
I don't use wvdial, so i'm no help there, sorry.

Yes, you are right , there was a problem with my ISP. Now it's connected but when try to visit any web site it display only "resolving name www.yahoo.com", that's all nothing going on?

i have checked in /etc/resolv.conf file. name server is display under this file.so what could be the problem now....

I think it's not resolving any web site. what could be the soultion? have any adea?

even i can't ping to any web site

Any word on a driver for Fedora Core 2?

I just want to try to use this PCTel modem for an answering machine, and I moved up to FedoraCore2 without knowing that I'd have problems.

I've gone no further than to get the error message:
"this package supports only 2.4.x kernels".

Any ideas?

hi

hi

that driver dosen't work with Fedora Core 2..
i.e
it dosen't work for 2.6.x kernels..
it is specified by the author that it supports only till 2.4.x kernels version only..

just send in a mail to the author of the driver and he shall respond...
Code:
robert.thornburrow@tsac.fsnet.co.uk
you can also get his email on the site also..

when i sent a mail about drivers his reply is here -have a look
Code:
The latest incarnation of my version of the pctel driver (rht-3) should work
with Fedora Core 1 - if you are getting errors, please mail them to me and I
will look into it.  If there are any other 2.4 distros that don't work, please
let me know, with as much information on the problem(s) as possible.

Fedora Core 2 and all other distros which use a 2.6 kernel are not yet
supported - this is being worked on and I hope to be able to pubish an
update soon.
thanks..

Those messages are kinda ok, the modules are already loaded. Check them with 'lsmod' command,
it would show both modules (pctel and ptserial) loaded among others

just keep on the procedure and you're done

Best Regards
