Tiger Jet modem

Unfortunately I’m still stuck with the modem configuration…. the terrible
Tiger Jet Network Inc. Intel 537

Starting from the beginning:

1 Trying to make a connection assisted with Red Hat 9B, the OS doesn’t find any modem dial up device (traditional 56k V92), but trough the browser hardware it see a modem device, a Tiger Jet….with driver “hisax”.
I made different attempts, and I understood that actually a modem dev. exist, but the OS see it like an ISDN, which the name is JetNet (Jet Network), obviously trying to connect with that the system has an error to load the modules, but during my search I understood that there’re two versions of that modem, an ISDN and a dial up, maybe the OS has identified the device for an ISDN even if it’s not… there any way to change it??

2 I found the driver for the chipset (intel 537), I followed the instructions to install it, all files were created and copied to the folders, nothing has changed, the driver is still “hisax”.

3 I also tried to use a script got from linmodems to diagnostic the modems installed, you can see the most useful parts of the report created:

Modem candidates are at PCI_buses: 00:06.0
Providing detail for device at PCI_bus 00:06.0
with Vendorevice PCI_IDs
00:06.0 Class 0780: e159:0001
Subsystem: 8086:0003
00:06.0 Communication controller: Tiger Jet Network Inc. Intel 537
Subsystem: Intel Corp.: Unknown device 0003
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 10
I/O ports at ec00 [size=256]

The AC'97 or MC97 Controller is:
e159:0001 TigerJet 320
e159:0001 0359:0003 TJ320 v3.1
e159:0001 8086:0003 TJ320 v2.0

The soft modem subSystem with PCI_id serving under the controller:

The rest of the report says only some information’s about the manufactures and where to find the drivers, things that I’ve already done.
Please give me an help, a Linux without internet is an house without windows.
