Alinux SpeedTouch

Hi, I have just installed Alinux,looks great so far. but I don't know how to get my modem working. I have the crappy thomson speedTouch 330, I can get it to work with SuSE and Mandriva by following the steps on these pages but it doesn't seem to work for Alinux. Any ideas would be helpful. Adrian

Hi Jolly, sorry I'm far from being an expert but I have re-installed Suse and Mandriva many times and havehad no bother with speedtouch 330 with either distro. I just copy and paste the instructions on the link I posted. my ISP Tiscali, says it uses pppoe and pppoa I use the pppoa scripts supplied and they work. All I can do is tell you the steps I take:
  1. 1 collect together all the firmware and copy it to your home folder
  2. 2 Find out what Revision Of The Modem using the script provided.
  3. 3 unzip the firmware with the commands given
  4. 4 copy it to: cp speedtch* /lib/firmware, go in and check its there.
  5. 5 not a lot to say except follow the script through, it worked for me on Suse 9.2 9.3 and 10.0 but I know your frustration as I can't get Alinux sorted with speedtouch. hope this helps? Adrian

SuSE 9.3 + 10.0 don't need
