Talking help is underway

before you begin, you need to go to your internet configuration to set your modem on /dev/ttyS2, which is com3 under windows; if you do it, just go to the modem configuration at the end of this message.
you will not need to change anything at all.

if your modem is supported by your operating system then you need to enter this command to set it up.
first you need to see on which port your modem is connected by enter

cat /proc/pci

on the xterminal, and look for the name of your modem.

for example, if your modem is on com3 on windows, it will be on /dev/ttyS2 under linux
look for IRQ 5 if your modem is on /dev/ttyS2

to setup your modem, please enter the following in the xterminal

exec setserial /dev/ttyS2 (replace the S2 by your port) irq 5 (replace the irq 5 by the irq number of your modem) port 0xc000 (replace the 0xc000 by the I/O of your modem) ^fourport ^auto_irq skip_test autoconfig spd_vhi

reopen the xterminal again and enter
setserial /dev/ttyS2 irq 5 port 0xc000 autoconfig
(replace the S2, irq 5, and the 0xc000 by the one of your modem; notice the 0xc000 are zeros not oh)
enter
ln /dev/ttyS2 (replace S2 again)
/dev/modem

please read the message first; now this is the modem command all together.

exec setserial /dev/ttyS2 irq 5 port 0xc000 ^fourport ^auto_irq skip_test autoconfig spd_vhi
open the xterminal again and enter

setserial /dev/ttyS2 irq 5 port 0xc000 autoconfig
ln /dev/ttyS2 /dev/modem
have fun
sincerely, clinton

oh man ..still cant get the darn thing working

actually ..i entered all the commands as you told me 2 ...still nothing..

i had enterd some thing earlier...which i think didnt make this work

Modem is on com3 and irq 4 [0*03e8]... please correct me if i am wrong

when i use lspci -vv ...it shows modem is on irq 12.....i cant get this.

when i used wvdial..i gave an errror message cannot open /dev/ttyS2

i checked out with aztech ..they say that modem is compatible with linux

modem does not get detected in dial up config package in gnome

i think this may be due to wri=ong port address
i enter port as 0*03e8

now setserial is not working at all..
i punch in the setserial command with some arguments and it just
does not gie any output..i have to use ctrl+z to get out...HELP

hello again

instead of using wvdial, you should use ppp because it is much more easier to setup. you need to go to program -> internet -> ppp utility and then setup and so on.
