modem configured but not dialing


I'm new to linux and just installed suse 9.2 with the KDE desktop on my dell inspiron 1100.

Modem configured easily enough, however, I still can't connect to the internet.

My ISP account settings are correctly configured.

The kinternet icon shows in the bottom right cluster of icons. When I rightclick on it the menu gives options for settings and also to dial. However, when I choose "dial" nothing happens.

If I go to the suse start button and pick internet>dial up then a pop up tells me kinternet is already running, look at the icon in the bottom right.

So, how do I get this thing to dial???

Thanks,
James Carruthers

Modem

U are using Suse Linux 9.2..... and probably it might have just detected your modem and understood that you have (an internal) or external modem. However, the driver for your modem might have not been installed. I had the same case with me. I installed the driver and things worked fine. I have the driver saved in my briefcase...just tell me your configuration (Hardware details and whether you have dual booting and other stuff....) through email or this thread and I will email you the driver which might probably work ( Well, not sure of that) however, you need to have your kernel source installed in your computer (also tell me the kernel 2.4.x.x or 2.6.x.x etc...)

Dual Booting with Win XP
And I'm totally new to this OS.

The modem shows in the device manager, but when I click on dial in the Kinternet menu nothing happens.

I tried running scan modem and this is what I got:

Modem

By the message, it seems you have an internal modem on the PCI slot of Intel make. (I am not sure of this, just let me know if I am right :-?).
Well, scanModem should have worked fine but it doesnt' seem to be... by the results...However, I feel U check http://www.intel.com for more information regarding your internal modem.

Or you may download the latest scanModem from here http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/scanModem.gz

and try running it once again... but before this...just spend 10 minutes reading this page....

http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/first.html

and then proceed doing anything....

Thanks, but I couldn't find anything about my modem on intel's site.
The scanModem I ran was from 3 March 05, which I downloaded from that same site yesterday. And I already read the linmodems page in detail. That was how I could run scanModem.

I checked the suse site and found another script to run, which gave some info.txt file regarding my modem.

In this file you'll see information also about a usb cable modem (a fixed cellar terminal). I'm not as interested in that one, as I see no hope for it at all. (Maybe someone else would, though?)
What I really want to make work is my internal modem.
Any help?

I finally got scanModem to work and this is the ModemData.txt file:

Can anyone help me now that this information is available?


DO use the following line as the email Subject Line, to alert cogent experts:
scanModem,

------------ -------------- System information ------------------------

Welcome to SuSE Linux 9.2 (i586) - Kernel
on System with processor: i686
currently under kernel: 2.6.8-24-default

The kernel-2.6.8-24-default was compiled with CONFIG_REGPARM, providing more compact and faster code.

The kernel was assembled with compiler: 3.3.4
a gcc package must be installed to support driver compiling

Checking for kernel-headers needed for compiling.

Modem symbolic link is: /dev/modem -> /dev/ttySL0
Checking for USB modems
None found

Modem candidates are at PCI_buses: 0000:00:1f.6

The soft modem Subsystem operates under a controller
8086:24c6 82801DB ICH4
capable of supporting under Linux AT LEAST modem Subsystem chips from manufacturers:

Broadcom
AgereSystems
Conexant
Intel
Smartlink
Use the SmartLink slmodem software for support.
For this Broadcom subsystem modem, the slmodemd daemon must be used in ALSA mode
slmodemd --alsa --country=YOURS modem:0
Driver snd-intel8x0m may enable codec acquisition

Beginning check for older ac97_codec modems.
An older ac97_modem codec was not detected.

------ dmesg slamr filtered -------
slamr: unsupported module, tainting kernel.

slamr: mc97 codec is BCM64
slamr: slamr0 is ICH4 card.
The softmodem Codec is: BCM64
Checking through information gathered from LinModem ARCHIVES
From prior reports, the modem codec type of the Subsystem is: BCM64
Agreement between slamr diagostic and Archive.
The Subsystem has a Broadcom codec BCM64
SmartLink software should support this modem
Only the SmartLink slmodem-2.9.9-alsa software supports this modem
== Checking PCI IDs through modem chip suppliers ==

Vendor 14e4 is BroadCom
14e4:4212 is a BCM V.90 56k modem
There is 2.2.n kernel support at:
http://support.ap.dell.com/ap/en/fil...?fileid=R47114
However the code has not been updated for some time.
For 2.4 kernels, fix by Giacomo Comes must be used. See :
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/arch.../msg01652.html
When serving under softmodem controllers like the Intel ICH series,
the Broadcom Subsystem 14e4:4d64 has mc97 codec BCM64.
For 2.6.n kernels, see success reports:
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/arch.../msg03690.html
http://oboc.ucdavis.edu/Marik/inspiron/
The support is achieved through a combination of:
1) the snd-intel8x0m.ko of 2.6.n kernel releases, which provides a low level interface with the modem;
2) an slmodemd daemon which creates ports and provides higher level functions.
Get the slmodem-2.9.9-alsa.tar.gz from http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/smartlink/
To compile the slmodemd, it is first Necessary to install a libasound2-dev package, providing alsa headers.
3) After compilation and installation of slmodemd, initiate service with:
# modprobe snd-intel8x0m
# slmodemd --alsa --country=YOURCOUNTRY hw:0
Read the slmodem documentation for details and Modem/Slmodem.txt


SmartLink at http://www.smlink.com/ owns vendor IDs 163c, 2000, 2003, and 2004
The official download site is: http://www.smlink.com/main/index1.php?ln=en&main_id=40 ,
but http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/smartlink/ has older packages and new fixes.
For the emerging 2.6.10 kernels, use the slmodem-2.9.9a.tar.gz therefrom.
Read Slmodem.txt for details.

== Checking PCI IDs through modem chip suppliers ==

Vendor=8086 is Intel, Inc. producing HaM and 536ep host controller free (HCF) modems, 537 soft modem
and AC97 and MC97 controllers managing a varierty of non-Intel soft modem Subsystems.
These subSystems often have PCI_IDs assigned by the modem assembler, rather than the chip provider.
Download available drivers through: http://developer.intel.com/design/mo...rt/drivers.htm with Intel-537 types at:
http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scri...230&page_nbr=2
Also check at: http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/Intel/537/
for beta releases and perhaps Already compiled drivers for some Linux distributions

GREPping for an inserted PCMCIA modem with filter: ommunication
If a PCMCIA modem is currently inserted and the sockets activated by

then the PCMCIA bridge is NOT transparent.

If the modem is known to have a Lucent digital signal processing chipset,
then PCMCIA.tar.gz variant assembled by Joern Wustenfeld is necessary,
rather than the standard ltmodem-8.31a9.tar.gz at http://ltmodem.heby.de/

SuSE 9.0 has pre-compiled drivers supporting the following modem chipsets:
Intel HaM and 536ep
Conexant HSF (but not the HCF)
Lucent/AgereSystems ltmodem (Digital Siggnal Processing type)
IBM wmave
Smart Link soft modems
Unfortunately only the Intel HaM and 536ep are on the 3 CD Personal set, pending an update.
Locations on the 6 CD Professional set are:
CD4/suse/i586/smartlink-softmodem-2.7.9-89.i586.rpm - the slmodemd daemon
CD3/suse/i586/km_smartlink-softmodem-2.7.9-89.i586.rpm - slmodem driver compiling

CD4/suse/i586/ltmodem-8.26a-54.i586.rpm - a patch from SuSE may be needed for function

CD4/suse/i586/mwavem-1.0.4-110.i586.rpm
Some pre-compiled SuSE 9.0 packages for the 2.4.21-99-default kernel are available at:
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/SuSE-9.0/
including AgereSoftModem and the Intel537 modems

IMPORTANT - The kernel-source-144/README.SuSE informs that the pre-assembled kernel-headers installed
from the 9.0 kernel-source-99 have some flaws. Upgrading to a later kernel, such as 2.4.21-144 with matching kernel-source is the simplest may of avoiding problems.

SuSE 9.1 comes with a SmartLink slamr.ko driver installed,
aiding identification of softmodem codecs by:
dmesg | grep slamr

For the 9.1 Personal (single CD installation) winmodem packages
have be downloaded from the SuSE 9.1 repository
Should compiling drivers may be necessary, the following additional packages
will have to be downloaded and installed:
make, glibc-devel, gcc-3.3.3 and kernel-source.
The kernel-headers are co-installed with the kernel-source.
Thus subsequent driver compiling does Not require additional preparations.
