I'd you'd typed the words "HSP56 Micromodem linux" into google and hit "I'm Feeling Lucky" Youd have the drivers by now...

This thread discusses the HSP56 modem under Mandrake, and may contain some useful info (but maybe not since it's an earlier version). Good luck with it either way -- J.W.

HSP modem

Here are some notes made to myself on the road to getting internet connected with Linux....hope it helps.

Just got on line with Amigo AMI-IA56 internal PCI dialup modem with Intel 536ep chipset. ($12 - google for it)

Maybe this will help.

1. Your ISP must play nice w/Linux...mine didn't (AOL) , had to change ISP.
2. I guess you know that DSL thru LAN (NIC) connection is easiest. No drivers. Took about 4 minutes.
3. Next easiest is dialup with external serial (NOT USB) modem. Google for Best DATA or US Robotics ($20 - $65). No drivers. Takes about 10-15 min. to configure in Kppp. I bought one for the kid's PC at thrift store. ($4). Everyone's getting rid of older 56k ser. modems. (they work with linux and are faster than some int. PCI modems)
4. More difficult is internal PCI modem requiring drivers (which includes both soft and hardware modems) You must determine whether your modem is a softmodem or a hardware modem. If you insist on installing an internal PCI modem, be prepared to search for drivers. It could take 1 day or three weeks depending on lots of variables. Also, do not expect much tech support from the modem manufacturer, even if the modem is listed as being linux compatible.

I'm fairly certain you have a software modem (HSP - host signal processor). Check here --> http://www.modemsite.com/56k/index.asp
good luck

thanks for the reply...

1. yes..my ISP is welcome to all kind of OS...certainly does...i've tested it on many system..Windows..Linux..MacOS...

2.well..i'm not in a LAN, nor have a DSL connection...it's pretty expensive here to have one...i can't get food for a monthfull if i'm insist to have DSL :>

3.that's the most possible way i will take...i'm collecting my money now...waiting to be enough to buy external modem...btw..why did u don't suggest an USB modem?i think it will be faster since USB far far faster than serial?

4. i've spent two whole weeks to find the driver...but...i'm glad that there's still some person who share their mind with me here...

thanks...

MDK 10.1 and modem

Most, if not all external USB modems are software modems, which means they requirespecific drivers.
