an ess teledrive modem we live in the boonies and cant get highspeed
here are some things that may help
this is modemdat.txt it was made by a program called modemscan that i downloaded i have a LAN card in my computer but its not the one i want set up because were only on dail up

======= PCI_ID checking completed ======
Update=2004 July 7
A PCMCIA CardBus is not detected on this System.
The following information blocks just query some ppp support items.
====================================================
grep ppp /etc/modules.conf
-------------------------------------

-------------------------------------
Be sure to read the section about ppp related modules and aliases in ModemGeneral.txt
DEVPPP=crw-rw---- 1 root uucp 108, 0 Mar 25 2001 /dev/ppp

The current modem symbolic link is: /dev/modem -> ttyS1
The ports /dev/ttyS0 or 1,2,3 are for standard Controller chip modems

DEVFSD=/etc/devfsd.conf
---- dmesg queries -------

The ModemDriverCompiling.txt is a MUST READ,
if you are not experienced in configuring kernel-source/
or get "unresolved symbols" upon driver insertion.

Most recent WinModem fixes are in: http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/FAQ.html

-------------- ending SCANMODEM section ----------------



this is modemtes.txt

FOLLOW UP STEPS.

1) Check for a symbolic link:
ls -l /dev/modem
which should display something like
/dev/modem --> /dev/WinModemPort
Some Distros may set a default
/dev/modem --> /dev/ttyS0 (or 1,2,3)
which are for Controller Chip modems only.
If represent,as Root:
# rm -f /dev/modem
# ln -s /dev/WinModemPort /dev/modem
If may prove necessary to disable a default BOOT UP setup for Controller Chip modems,
to prevent resetting of the unwanted default link.
Note that the Smartlink slmodem ports are an exception. The /dev/modem link should be set as:
ln -s /dev/ttySL0 /dev/modem

2) Loading drivers
Do FIRST read INSTRUCTIONS files provided with the modem driver resource.
Some may have installed to /usr/share/doc/Modem_or_Driver_Name/
For RPM using distros, documentation files will be listed through
rpm -q -d packageName (less the version part, sometimes)
and all directly installed files can be listed by
rpm -q -l packageName
Depending upon your installation, the modem drivers may/may_not be autoloaded.
Login as Root in a console with:
# su - root
# lsmod
If the modem drivers are not already loaded onto the kernel, insert them with command
# modprobe ModuleDriver
If there are multiple drivers such as the lt_modem.o and lt_serial.o pair,
inserting the serial like driver first
# modprobe lt_serial
ALSO will autoload all modules it depends on, through a reading of dependency files
written to /lib/modules/2.4.22/ during boot up through the "depmod -a" command.
In constrast
# insmod lt_serial
would only attempt loading of that single driver and will FAIL, if its dependency on
lt_modem.o has been satisfied by prior lt_modem.o insertion.

3) Testing drivers.
For a first test of the drivers, it is Very Usefull to have installed the package: wvdial.
It provides a wvdialconf "sanity test" of driver+hardare. Do read "man wvdial" and
sometime browse the documentation that is written to /usr/share/doc/wvdial/
The first step in setting up wvdial is to run its configuration program as Root.

Below is the output from a System with a Lucent/Agere modem
wvdialconf will either follow a symbolic link /dev/modem --> /dev/ModemPort
or check through ports with name style: /dev/ttyS*
Below ttySLT0 is the modem port name,
replacing /dev/ttyLTO when the Device Files System (devfs) is in use.
%% begun lines below are my added comments.

# wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf

%%% This wvdialconf action if successful generates the files:

/etc/ppp/peers/wvdial-pipe
and for further editing, /etc/wvdial.conf
[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttySLT0
Baud = 115200
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ISDN = 0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
; Phone = <Target Phone Number>
; Username = <Your Login Name>
; Password = <Your Password>

For systems using the SmartLink slmodem drivers,
the following line should be added to its /etc/wvdial.conf
Carrier Check = no

Note that if your IP is the MicroSoft Network, then use syntax:
Username = MSN/<Your Login Name>
Edit these lines and remove the ";" to activate them.
If not in the USA, an additional lines specifying the country is necessary.
Thus after the edit, there should be the following format for /etc/wvdial.conf

[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttySLT0
Baud = 115200
Init1 = ATZ
# the following line is not necessary in the USA usually
Init2 =AT+GCI=b4
# b4 is the hexadecimal country code for the United Kingdom
Init3 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ISDN = 0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Phone = 1234567890
Username = YourLoginName
Password = YourPassword

Many Users prefer to use the dialout utility KPPP. This is fine.
But each User MUST run the configuration process separately.
In principle, different Users on the same Linux System could
have different Internet providers and/or use different modems.

4) Preparation for your first dialout.
Concurrent ethernet capability will compete for
the Domain Name Service (DNS) needed for browser naviagation. So as root:
# /sbin/ifconfig eth0 down
before starting a dialout!
With a Mandrake installation, it will be necessary to:
# /etc/init.d/network stop

5) Internet clients such as Netscape, Mozilla, Explorer etc.
should be CLOSED during your first dial out trials.
Should a URL on the Internet be specifed as the default URL/connect,
then the Client may compete with ppp for connectivity functions.
After PPP functionality has been verified, the effects of opened
or launched browsers can be checked

If you have installed the DIALD (dial on demand) package, stop it for initial tests:
# /etc/init.d/diald stop
Otherwise diald function will be initiated with modem usage,
and could compilate issues. Test diald only after ppp by itself is fine.

If your internet provider assigns DNS dynamically then add to /etc/ppp/options:
usepeerdns

To analyze a dialout attempt, it is useful to display kernel messages with:
# tail -f /var/log/messages &
or to achieve some prefix trimming:
# tail -f /var/log/messages | cut -d: -f4- &
The & puts the commanded process in the "background" allowing recovery of the command prompt.

Some dialer packages (kppp etc) may automate the above steps.

6) A dail out with wvdial will then display like:

# wvdial &
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.53
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
ATZ
OK
--> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 M1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0

: remote IP address 208.59.89.132
: primary DNS address 207.172.3.8

7) Note that for some Linux distributions (Mandrake for one),
maintain modules in compressed module.gz format, if modem service was not specified
during the Linux installation. A subsequent installation of any dialer package:
wvdial - PPP dialer with built-in intelligence.
kppp - PPP dialer for KDE
dtmfdial - A DTMF Tone Dialer
gkdial - Gtk-based PPP dial-up configuration tool.
gkdial-gnome - GNOME-based PPP dial-up configuration tool.
masqdialer - daemon for remote control of masqueraded dialup links
will stimulate unpacking of ppp related modules during bootup.

The cogent ppp related modules loaded during such a CONNECT are displayed within the output from:
# lsmod
ppp_deflate 3512 1 (autoclean)
zlib_inflate 18980 0 (autoclean) [ppp_deflate]
zlib_deflate 18648 0 (autoclean) [ppp_deflate]
bsd_comp 4440 0 (autoclean)
ppp_async 7744 1 (autoclean)
ppp_generic 16380 3 (autoclean) [ppp_deflate bsd_comp ppp_async]
slhc 5264 1 (autoclean) [ppp_generic

For ealier 2.4.nn kernels, loading of these modules may require the following lines within
/etc/module.conf :
### automate ppp modules loading ###
alias /dev/ppp ppp_generic
alias char-major-108 ppp_generic
alias tty-ldisc-3 ppp_async
alias tty-ldisc-14 ppp_synctty
alias ppp-compress-21 bsd_comp
alias ppp-compress-24 ppp_deflate
alias ppp-compress-26 ppp_deflate
### end ppp block ####
For more recent kernels with their modutils,
these lines are no longer needed.

8) For potential causes of a NO DIALTONE failure, read the Post-install.html
at http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/ Not setting the Country Code may be
and additional problem.

COUNTRY CODE Issues
====================
The modem which you purchase locally or abroad may not be preset
with the proper Country Code setting. An incorrect setting can
hinder acquisition of dial tone.
Inclusion of an X3 (dial without wainting) in the modem Init string
of under wvdial, including in /etc/wvdial.conf a line
Stupid Mode = yes

Dialtone recognition depends on the setting of country
and/or local phone line equipment.

To properly get dialtone for your country phone experiment use
AT+GCI=xx where xx is country code in hexidecimal format.
Theoretically there could be 256 different countries but
not all are valid. Tables in manuals are way off date,
you have to write a small script to try all combinations
for yourself if you can't guess by chance.

After country select you can check textual name of the country it represents.
For example:
at+gci=00
OK
ati9
Japan

If you can't find exact country, choose the nearest one available.
Nearby countries tend to have similar equipment and compatible dialtones.

These comments from: Emard <emard@softhome.net>
=================

9) After a successful CONNECT, the Domain Name Service (DNS) needed
for Browser navigation can be checked with:
# ping corel.com
PING corel.com (206.47.20.85): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 206.47.20.85: icmp_seq=0 ttl=52 time=209.1 ms
64 bytes from 206.47.20.85: icmp_seq=1 ttl=52 time=189.9 ms
64 bytes from 206.47.20.85: icmp_seq=2 ttl=52 time=180.0 ms
64 bytes from 206.47.20.85: icmp_seq=3 ttl=52 time=179.9 ms
# Ctrl-C
aborts ping
--- corel.com ping statistics ---
4 packets transmitted, 4 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 179.9/189.7/209.1 ms

# ping 206.47.20.85
PING 206.47.20.85 (206.47.20.85): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 206.47.20.85: icmp_seq=0 ttl=52 time=179.8 ms
64 bytes from 206.47.20.85: icmp_seq=1 ttl=52 time=190.0 ms
64 bytes from 206.47.20.85: icmp_seq=2 ttl=52 time=170.0 ms
# Ctrl-C
aborts ping

Should there be a success with:
# ping 206.47.20.85
BUT a failure with the named address:
ping corel.com
Then DNS has not been acquired.
Note that failure to stop ethernet service
# /sbin/ifconfig eth0 down
before starting a dialout, will commonly block DNS under ppp.

To terminate the wvdial session, bring the action to the foreground (fg):
# fg wvdial
Ctrl-C to terminate:
wvdial
Caught signal #2! Attempting to exit gracefully...
: secondary DNS address 207.172.3.9
: Terminating on signal 15.
: Connection terminated.
: Connect time 7.8 minutes.
--> Disconnecting at Sat Jul 26 14:06:53 2003

10) The Debian distribution provides a utility:
# pppconfig
for setting up a chatscript for ppp initiation.
Most dialers do use chatscripts and will produce similar records.
Below is the record of a dial out initiated by:

# pon
: pppd 2.4.1 started by marv, uid 1000
: abort on (BUSY)
: abort on (NO CARRIER)
: abort on (VOICE)
: abort on (NO DIALTONE)

: remote IP address 208.59.89.132
: primary DNS address 207.172.3.8

Once your first CONNECT has been established, than in the future if should suffice
just to use your dialer of choice: wvdial , kppp .gnomeppp or whatever.

Good surfing to you.

11) GENERAL ITEMS

If attemped insertion of a modem driver evokes a complaint like:
unresolved symbol do_SAK_R9a0bcb74
then the kernel-headers using in compiling the modem drivers
do not match those of your current kernel whose KernelVersion is displayed by:
uname -r
and whose kernel config file is often located at /boot/config-KernelVersion
The section above "COMPILING DRIVERS, for Newbies" relates how to make corrections.

There are definitely IPs whose login protocols are Linux hostile.
If you cannot achieve a login, try another Internet Provider (IP).
or ask for someone on discuss@linmodems.org to test your IP.

Many driver packages provide for loading modem drivers on bootup.
Here is a description on how to set it up, if necessary:
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/arch.../msg00451.html

PLEASE include the diagnostic output of the following Root command in any problem reports:
# setserial -agv /dev/ttyS*

For instructions on having modem drivers loaded on bootup,
particularly the SmartLink slmodem drivers see:

If the Primary and Subsystem Vendor information was not adeqaute,
it may be useful to search at http://www.pcidatabase.com/


-----------------------------------------------------
The System has Ethernet capability. If not expert,
shut down ethernet before initiated modem usage with:
# ifconfig eth0 down

00:0b.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
Subsystem: AOPEN Inc.: Unknown device 0027
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 5
I/O ports at a400 [size=256]
Memory at e5800000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256]
Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2



Within /lib/modules/You_Kernel_Version/kernel/drivers/net/
at least the following modules needed for communication should be found
ppp_deflate.o
zlib_inflate.o
zlib_deflate.o
bsd_comp.o
ppp_async.o
ppp_generic.o
slhc.o
BUT they may be present instead as ModuleName.o.gz
If so unpack them with a commands like:
# gzip /lib/modules/You_Kernel_Version/kernel/drivers/net/ModuleName.o.gz
Alternatively, installing the dialer package KPPP may force their unpacking.

Following a dialout attempt, display loaded modules with:
# /sbin/lsmod
If there are not displayed lines like:

ppp_deflate 3512 1 (autoclean)
zlib_inflate 18980 0 (autoclean) [ppp_deflate]
zlib_deflate 18648 0 (autoclean) [ppp_deflate]
bsd_comp 4440 0 (autoclean)
ppp_async 7744 1 (autoclean)
ppp_generic 16380 3 (autoclean) [ppp_deflate bsd_comp ppp_async]
slhc 5264 1 (autoclean) [ppp_generic

addition of the following lines to /etc/modules.conf or /etc/modules.conf.d/ folders may be needed:

### automate ppp modules loading ###
alias /dev/ppp ppp_generic
alias char-major-108 ppp_generic
alias tty-ldisc-3 ppp_async
alias tty-ldisc-14 ppp_synctty
alias ppp-compress-21 bsd_comp
alias ppp-compress-24 ppp_deflate
alias ppp-compress-26 ppp_deflate
### end ppp block ####

After any edit of /etc/modules.conf or /etc/modules.conf.d/ folders ,
inform the System by logging into a console with
# su - root
and running the update command:
# depmod -a
which re-reads /etc/modules.conf and parses all the modules dependencies.
Debian like Distros should instead use:
update-modules


Attempted of effective networking links are displayed by command:
# /sbin/ifconfig
A block with "lo" is an internal loopback test and harmless.
However, ethernet "eth0" can be problematic for PPP connections,
because of competition for DNS (domain name service).
The default is to use the DNS specified for etherenet and
without expert configuration, this will block browser naviagation through PPP.
========== ifconfig test =============
lo Link encap:Local Loopback

If is wisest to disable bootup establishment of ethernet in your Control Center.
Depending on your Linux distribution,
one of the following Root commands way alternatively be effective:
# ifdown eth0
# ifconfig eth0 down
# /etc/init.d/network stop
# /etc/init.d/networking stop
