Modem setup

Ray,

Check the HCL for a new modem. They have one on Linux.org or Linuxquestions.org.
:-).

Hi pals,

I am also at the end of my road trying to get my SuSE 9.1 Professional to detect my USR 56K Winmodem.

Is there any universal drivers available for USR Winmodems anywhere?

Or is there anybody here who has successfully made his/her Linux system to work with USR Winmodems?

Thanks for reply!!


Regards,

Rykel

dear rykel~
please gave something more detail other than general stuff.
that way it's easier for others to look for answers on the internet.
please display the output of "lspci" and "dmesg | grep Modem"
