TFM-PCIV92A 56k modem on Ubuntu.

Hi my friend is having trouble with getting his dial up modem working in Ubuntu 5.10. The modem is TFM-PCIV92A model number. I did a search for it on but got few hits and the actually manufactor site only has drivers for windows. Is Ndiswrapper only for wireless or could this help us out in this problem? It looks like it uses an Agere chipset Is there a generic driver that we could us? What kind of sources could i look to for generic drivers? thanks for any help in advance.

USB modens dont work well with linux and if you get it working it will never work as well as it did in windows

if you need dail up the a serial modem will do that job rember
that they are all hardware modems with an easy interface that is easy for linux and windows to command

the reasion for these silly USB modems and many if not all PCI cards is that they use computer programs to take a way electronic hardware that cost the consuma letting the computer doing some of the work and tend to be smaller to and cheeper [ some times they may say hardware moden PCI or USB, just egnore them ] often called
