Modems troubles-Suse 8.2


I'm a newbie to linux. I have Suse 8.2 and am having trouble configuring my modem. It's not being automatically detected. I can't manually detect it either. I have a US Robotics 5610B Fax Modem. Redhat 9.0 detects it right away but not Suse 8.2. I checked the HCL for Suse and it said compatability unknown.


Can anyone please help.

There shouldn't be much to it. What are you doing to activate the modem and what (if any) error messages come up.

There is no error message that comes up. It just doesn't see that it's there. I tried re-installing Suse and it didn't catch it aoutomatically and I couldn't configure it manually either. The HCL say that it's compatability is unknown. Redhat 9 picks it up just fine.

You still haven't told me how you're activating the modem. Are you using kppp? pon? gkdial? Also, I'm not sure about suse but there should be a /etc/ppp/peers/provider file. If there is, post it. If not Try to create one with pppconfig (that may be a debian-specific package). You're provider file should look something like:

hide-password
noauth
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/provider"
debug
/dev/ttyS1
115200
defaultroute
noipdefault
user "paka"
remotename provider
ipparam provider
persist

You may not want all those options but that's the general format. Basically, I need more information before I can help you properly.
