Question Netcomm Mega-i-Modem problem


Tried searching the forums before posting here.

I'm trying to get my Netcomm Mega-i Modem (external) working with RH 8. My kernel version is 2.4.18.

My modem is on Com 1 , however when I try to configure a connection using the GUI configuraiton tool, i get a message that says 'modem not detected.'

I tried running wvdialconf , but no modem was detected again.

I ran the following command : setserial -bg /dev/ttyS* to get a listing of devices attached to my serial ports and RH reports something on Com1.

when I go echo atz > ttyS0 , I can get the modem LEDs to blink..., but thats as far as it goes....

I have an ethernet card installed, which I disabled thinking that there might be a hardware conflict, but to no avail...

When RH is booting, I get a message that says "Unable to load ppp0, error code 8 "......

Really confused....can someone please help???....

Much appreciated,
