my friend use a 12 conexant modem, we bought a driver from linuxant in order to make RH9 work. The driver cost 13 but the installation is painless. The same modem work better in linux than in windows.

They accept paypal payment.

USB ADSL modems not supported in Linux as yet it seems

I have a PROLINK 8000 ADSL modem. No Linux support except a driver for RedHat 7.2 ! This is now too old!
Anyone using this medem who had better luck?
I wish to have one which works with Debian so i can apt-get happily

"Step 3: getting it to work
# cd /dev; test -c ttyS4 || ./MAKEDEV ttyS4; chmod 666 /dev/ttyS4
# setserial /dev/ttyS4 uart 16550A port 0x80000 irq 11 baud_base 115200 spd_vhi skip_test
# ln -sf /dev/ttyS4 /dev/modem"

Hey this was great! I used your commands except I put in my own irq and port and it worked. Even Yast was able to recognize the modem once I done this. Only one problem. I have to do this every time I boot up. How can I install this information permanently?

# ln -sf /dev/ttyS4 /dev/modem"

used this commandline but for some reason had to add in
"setserial /dev/ttyS4/ port 0xd400 irq 10 autoconfig"

Also I do not know how to save it so I do the same thing every time I boot.

Hmm.... I don't know why you have to redo this ever time. What are you using to dial your isp (kinternet, kppp)? You could just type those commands into a shell script and if your wm is kde put it in the autostart folder.

Right now I am using wvdial. Wvdial is not the problem though, it recognizes the modem everytime without the command line but it has a Nameserver (DNS) failure and says the connection may not work.

So I turned to my hardware installer "Yast" but it won't recognize the modem until I put in your command line. Still, after that, I am unable to browse.

I plan to install minicom for dialer eventually but I want to get the thing surfing first.

setserial

i am trying to install an expansion card which has two serial ports, and when i disable my on-board serial ports linux automatically picks up the new ports, so the kernal does recognize the hardware, however if my on-board serial ports are enabled i cannot setserial to add the new parts. every time i try the following:

/bin/setserial /dev/ttyS2 port 0x03e8 irq 9 uart 16550

i get the following message:
LSR safety check engaged!

if it helps i am running rehat 8.0 2.4.18-14
Thanks,
Gauravdawra
