Wow ... I am so confused ... I also am very new to Linux so bear with me, but I have built several desktops. Experience has taught me that there are very few Linux compatitable modems. To the best of my knowledge only ActionTec and USRobotics make a Linux ready modem for a PCI slot on the mainboard. I had the same problem you did trying to access the web unitl I changed the modem to USRobotics and then all was good for me. You can go to the USRobotics web site and research their available modems to find out the right model numbers same with ActionTec. Good luck, I know it frustrated me for weeks.

mak,
Well you might have to, I did an it solved the problem. I went to the USRobotics web site and could not find your modem anywhere. I am guessing that it is a USR2974 from the info in your post. I bought two (one for each machine) USR5610B modems, worked right out of the box. All I had to do was the internet confiruration stuff. I searched for some info and here are some places you might try for help:
www.drivers.com
www.56k.com
www.linmodems.org
you have to register with drivers.com to use the sight but it is free or was when I did it couple years ago. Hope this is of some help to you.

This machine here says U.S. Robotics 56k fax pci an the com port which it is allocated to, just as yours sort of says but it does not say that it is a Linux compatible modem. When I wen to the USR web site and clicked on 56k modems they listed 2 for external use and 4 for internal use of those 4 only one is good to go for both windows and linux the remaining 3 are "win" modems. I looked for drivers for your particular modem the 2974 at their web site but it was not listed at all. That leads me to think that it is an older modem or maybe possibly the 2974 number is not the modem number after all. It has been several months since I looked for modems but as I mentioned earlier I have only found those two mfgrs for linux modems. There could be more but since USR is fairly well known I went with them. Good luck and you might find something on those web sites I listed.
