hey everybody,

I have been trying to get my modem to dial out for the last three days. I have a conexant, and I have downloaded the appropiate drivers and installed them. Originally my modem was /dev/ttyS1. I can use kppp to recognize the modem, and it will query, but it will come back with empty querys. Also, when I check the terminal in kppp (modem), it initializes, and says modem is ready. When I tell the kppp to connect, it attempts to initialize, and just appears to lock up, or just never initialize. Also, I have tried using hcfpconfig, and that changed the link that I created for the modem (/dev/modem) from /dev/ttyS1 to /dev/ttySHC0. kppp does not recognize, and the only thing it will recognize for me is when I either select /dev/modem when it is linked to /dev/ttyS1 or selecting /dev/ttyS1 itself. Can someone please help. I have to be able to connect to the internet somehow using Linux for my college classes that start on the 3rd. I can use windows well, but I am 'sort of' new to linux...used quite a bit before, but always on a LAN. Can't wait to hear from you guys...
