Question Unable to navigate the web.

I have a Dell 4100 pc with a 1Ghz PIII, and 512Mb ram. I run WinXP, and Mandrake 8.1 in a duel boot. I have an Eicon Diva T/A ISDN modem connected externally on ttyS0. I can connect to my isp and load partially to fully only one web page and then it stalls not going anyfurther until I tell the browser to stop and restart my internet connection. This problem is linux only, as I am sending this in XP. Anyone have any suggestions? Or if further info is needed what? I can find and send whatever is needed to get this problem straightened out. It also occured in Mandrake 8.0 so I just gave up and went back to 7.2. In 7.2 I had no problems with navigating the web. TIA

I have a similar problem. The only difference being I'm using XP
& RedHat 8.0. XP works no problem.

I can successfully communicate with the Eicon box using RedHat
via /dev/ttyS0, running AT@MENU etc, and since it works with
XP I think it is to do with the modem initialisation string. This
is where it's getting a little confusing as you need to both get it
right for talking to the box, which in turn needs to be set up right
for your ISP.

I'm using demon by the way. so to start with you may need low
level stuff configuring:

1) (probably common) 8 bits. no parity, 1 stop bit, no flow
control. You can verify this by looking at your XP setting.
2) (probably common) PPP protocol, no modem error control,
no hardware control
3) (probably demon specific) no modem compression, no PPP
authorisation (eg noauth), no chap, use pap authentication.
4) (probably demon specific) enable LCP extensions, enable
software compression, enable multilink for single link connections.

Well, that's all I could sponge from the XP side...

After talking with EICON yesterday, they also thought there
might be to do with initialisation, here are some examples
they suggested (they didn't work for me, but should serve
as a few clues):



AT%A2=95 (just specifying the data protocol)

or another variant


So they think it might be the data protocol, which kind
of makes sense when you look at the led's on the front.

What string are you using? It looks like you might be a step
further on than me.

For a full list of AT stuff for this box look at:

... I'm still experimenting, but I think it's on these lines.
If you have any joy with this, please tell me. I don't
have time to experiment today.

Good luck!
