hello linuxquestions...
I have a DELL LATITUDE c640 laptop with pctel 2304wt modem.
I've just installed Fedora Core 2 and upgrade to kernel 2.6.7.
I've found drivers for kernel 2.4.* ,
but I couldn't find a method to use modem with kernel 2.6.7.
Please help me with this problem.
Thanks for your help...

Firstly thaks for your reply penguin4
I've read many howtos and searched internet.
The only solution seems to find a familiar driver. tells SmartLink driver can be used for
kernel 2.6.7. A tried but failed.
I sucessfully load driver support to my kernel but still no response from my modem.
Please send me your sugesstions...
