HELP me please!!! Urgent support needed
 
Hi..

I'm really really stuck right now.

I've installed Mandrake 9.1, and remade the kernel to suite the drivers for my USB modem. Everything went beautifully except for one thing... It tells me when I try to connect using KPPP "unable to open modem".

The modem is located at /dev/modem or /dev/ttyUSB0.

What should I do? Please, really I need help with this. Thanx.

Is there something I'm overseeing?
I tried connecting through ROOT too but no go.

ok here are the stps u must do...

step 1......remove your modem driver
step2..... get a binary package for your modem and your kernel type
step3.... run as a root user #hsfconfig
step4.... follow the instructions.....till it writes modem module installation successful......it is very important to note down your modem port no. and the device type...... in your case i guesss it should give....dev/tty/USB0......
step5.....add a modem onto your network devices....initially it will not detect....but continue...and add the ISP provider tele no. and various other details....do not forget to type in the dev/tty/USB0....as and when asked.....
step6.....after dong this activate your device......it will connect you...take my word......
step7.....tell me did it work!!!1
