As far as I know, and I could be wrong (it's been known to happen), that particular winmodem isn't supported in Linux.

I'd suggest installing a supported modem or using an external serial modem. You might get lucky and find a pcmcia modem that works in Linux but a regular hardware serial modem is your better bet.

Try "" site.

You might have to look around into other similar models
even if your particular model's info isn't greatfully helpful
to get some idea for workarounds.

Good luck!
