8086:24c6 PCI_ID of the PCI bus with vendor: 8086
1179:0001 PCI_ID of Subsystem with vendor: 1179
are key Sought Descriptions of your modem firmware.
Have them ready when visiting URLs with service software!!

An AC'97 or MC97 controller cooperates with the modem Subsystem
8086:24c6 INTEL ICH4 +

First accessing chipset provider and modem assembler information
for the modem SubSystem under the AC'97 or MC97 Controller.

=== Checking 1179 through chipset providers and modem assemblers ====

Vendor 1179 is Toshiba, using some motherboards with soft modems.
=== Checking 8086 through chipset providers and modem assemblers ====

Vendor=8086 is Intel, Inc. producing HaM and 536ep host controller free (HCF) modems, the 537 soft modem
and AC'97 and MC97 controllers managing a varierty of non-Intel soft modem subSystems.
These subSystems will in have PCI_IDs assigned by the modem assembler, not Intel.
Download available drivers from:
Also check at:
for early releases and perhaps Already compiled drivers for some Linux distributions

====== PCI_ID checking completed ======

Update=2003 October 9

Some installers may alternately be found by searching for ltmodem at:


The following information blocks just query some ppp support items.
grep ppp /etc/modules.conf
Be sure to read the section about ppp related modules and aliases in /tmp/modem/ModemData.txt.2
=== ifconfig test ====
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:00:39:72C:F5
lo Link encap:Local Loopback

DEVPPP=crw------- 1 root root 108, 0 ene 30 2003 /dev/ppp
A /dev/modem symbolic link is not present

No devfsd.conf file sound, indicated absense of the devfsd daemon package
for device file system (devfs) symbolic link support.


Also i got slmdm-2.7.10.tar and tried to configure but i got several errors, can anybody help me???
