External dial up modem and kernel 2.6


Does the connexant modem driver support kernel 2.6 because I got error when hsfconfig step. Btw, I have successfully installed the driver before. A long time ago with kernel 2.4. So I just wonder is there anybody successfully install the connexant modem in kernel 2.6.

If not, maybe I want to buy external dial up modem. And does Linux support all the external dial up modem???????

Or the case is like printer? Some yes. Some no. Some partial.

Here's my error when hsfconfig.

hi, in order for your conexant modem to function properly you have to get the new drivers, that support the new 2.6 kernel, from www.linuxant.com! however, the new drivers are for a fee, it's only 14.99$, but you can download a free version from their site that only supports 14.4k! this is to make sure that their modem driver will work with your modem! so you have to pay to get the 56k V.92 support!
i don't have much experience with external modems, but i think they all work fine, but STAY AWAY from USB models, last time i checked they were worse that internal software modems!!
