Question Can't get no connection satisfation.


I'm a Tux virgin, a cybor babe in the woods. Recently installed Ubuntu 6.06, dual booted w/XP. My Zoom 3095 USB modem works w/ my XP but after following all the several install methods from the manual I called the manf, they were of no help and frankly rude. I'm still stuck using XP until I get online w/ Linux. Any ideas?

Go to this site: http://ubuntuguide.org/. Look at the hardware section, entry 1.10.5 Modems/Network.

Sorry, but where?

Thanks for quick reply. Had trouble following link. Ubuntuguide.org has no obvious Hardware tab. Followed link to ubuntuforums.org, saw no obvious place to search by entry #.

No need to search, just scroll down the list until you get to the relevant section.

Followed your suggested link, saw a few references to modems in section 11 (Hardware). Did not see the entry number that you gave me. Still stuck in neverland.

You probably need the kernel source for your running kernel to install the driver. I have the modem working perfect in Slackware. If you have the kernel source and the driver compiled correctly, then you would need to run dgcconfig. You should install Gnome-ppp which makes thing s easier. Once you get that installed. You need to go into the settings to tell Gnome-ppp where to find the modem. It should be /dev/modem but if you dont have /dev/modem than you should use /dev/ttyACM0. Post back and let me know how it goes.

Here's specific instructions

Here is how I got it running on SuSE 8.2, an older distribution I still adore. Anything newer than Ubuntu Gutsy will probably have a new enough kernel you can just go to www.linuxant.com and get the new driver and go. For older distros you need to update your kernel.
