I tried it again, does not work.

Intresting situation though.

There was a choice between Standard Modem and Winmodem

I selected Winmodem this time and it said "Your modem does not support it" well, I clicked on CANCEL and it asked me if I wanted to install "Install rpm" so I clicke don OK and it said applying packages for a brief second. I went to try it again and Connection failed.

I dont know whats going on but this is beginning to be a pain.

It looks like I have the wrong modem again.

Is there any other suggestions?

This modem WILL NOT work. Thats that. Its still a Winmodem which is not supported. So I dont know why the box says its good for Linux too.

I went into the NIC again, and then selected Wizard. Then I selected "Autodetect"

Then selected "Standard Modem". Then left COM ports selection alone but it was checked on COM-0 default and it had /dev/modem as the last one in the list. I hit next. Configured my ISP settings like this:

Connection Name: Internet
Phone #: 1234567
Login ID: myusername
Password: xxxxxx
PAP

And then I hit Next and I selected "do you want to connect to the Internet now" And it tested it and No Luck.

Also. I went by these notes on the HCL area of the forum: The ones with the ?? I dont understand.

1. Install LNUX_3ComMdm-1.0-1.i386.rpm
(from US Robotics website)
2. Edit /etc/init.d/serial and change
COMPORT=/dev/ttyS3 to /dev/ttyS4
3. Delete the /dev/modem symlink if present ???
4. Recreate 'ln -s /dev/ttyS4 /dev/modem' ???

And in the US Robotics websites, it says to install with this command:
rpm -i 3ComMdm-1.0-1.i386.rpm at the command prompt.

But you have it wriitem down WITH the (LNUX)???? Like this:
rpm -i LNUX_3ComMdm-1.0-1.i386.rpm

All I know, that Im pretty much screwed over on this Internet Connection issue

select THAT ONE (/dev/modem)...

also, remove any options you selected for "winmodems"... THE 5610B IS NOT A WINMODEM.

it must by a typo on the website... look at the name of the rpm you downloaded... it's starts with "LNUX"... if the rpm you downloaded was called "seaworld-1.3.5-i386.rpm" then the command to install that rpm would be "rpm -i seaworld-1.3.5-i386.rpm"...

Ok, Im going to ask you now on which ones do I have to select when I start the DrakConnect (NIC) to get me going.

Autodetect Devices or Expert Mode?
Standard modem or Winmodem? I SELECTED STANDARD MODEM BEFORE and di not work.

Which COM port? or /dev/modem/ ??

ISP Configurations? Where it says Phone # what format do I have to use?
And after I configured the ISP settings, what do I have to do? Like click Apply and OK or reboot?

I hope your familiar with this DrakConnect or NIC. Like I said, I did not locate the kppp dialer. Thats what I call weird.

Now, before doing this again will I have to re-install the driver again?

And what do these 2 connamds mean? I got this from the HCL Forum area. Under Mandrake 9.2 test results.

3. Delete the /dev/modem symlink if present ???
4. Recreate 'ln -s /dev/ttyS4 /dev/modem' ???

After you tell me what to select, and if this does not work, then is there any options???

Under the Testing Connection Window there i noticed that it said the following:

Settings then Connections/
then next to Profile it said Default, and the slot looks like a pull-down menu but all there is is "default" listed there.

Then I tried looking at the floppy one more time and mounting it, the output was: 3ComMdm Installed already.

Gedit looks good (ttyS4) that what I changed it to.

No matter what people say, I NEED TO get an external modem. This modem is not compatible with Mandrake 9.1

All I want to know if I should keep this new modem or get an external one?

I went into the NIC and selected:

Use Auto-detection
Standard Modem
(Then there was the COM ports 0 to 9 I think. then at the last one was listed as (dev/modem). COM0 was checked by default.) I tried every combination attempts. Who knows.

And before this, I edited the Gedit like you told me to.

Then I started filling out my Connection name user id, password, access# (BTW, is it in this format? 123-1234 or 1231234??), PAP.

Then clicked on Test Connection and failed.

I followed yuor exact instructions. And the last command detected or was pointing to ttyS4 like you said.

I did this before BTW. Or maybe I should of rebooted??

Ok, what about uninstalling the rpm package and re-installing it again? Maybe that would help.

If it would help, then whats the command for uninstalling and re-installing?

I took out my modem and replaced it maybe that would help.

Please, I need some assistance. I would appreciate it. I do not know what to do anymore.

Please really need the help. I just want to be able to connect. Thats all.

What should I do? I tried everything. The 5610B. according to the box, says Windows and Linux. So it has to work. I dont know whats going on.

I explained above what I did to the ISP settings and such.

On the COM Ports, I selected /dev/modem. But still no success.

Quick question,

If all else fails with these settings, is it posible to obtain a DNS IP address??? If yes than do I have to contact my ISP?

Im sorry I've been pushy but I got a deadline till next week to do this. I would really appreciate the help. And the help you've been so far.

don't use "auto-detect", and make sure you have nothing that says "winmodem" selected...

use "/dev/modem" as com port...

have you tried dialing-out?? does the modem fail after dialing or does it not dial yet??

Ok, the results of the last command was :

Serial Controller: US Robotics /3Com 56K FaxModem 5610 rev1 IRQ 11 1/0 at Oxdff0
(Oxdff7) I beleive this was number 3.

It had some more information about Nvidia card and VGA and stuff like that. I dont know it was too long for me to write down.

BTW, for nextime, I tried COPY/PASTING this but it will not work. Because I guess when the PC reboots it looses its COPY?Paste memory or something. If you know a trick please let me know.

And also heres what I did:

I selected Expert Mode in the DRAKConnect Wizard. then I selected /dev/mode in the COM selections. Then the ISP info. (does it matter how I type the access number to my ISP?)??????? Then I selected Connect to Internet now (yes) Ok, then it says "Connecting to Internet........" but I hear no dial tone then after a few seconds it says "Connection Failed" please see your MCC Internet configuration.


Thats all I could tell you. Im afraid.

But its MY FAULT!!!!!! because I should of checked the compat. lists. But I did not know Linux was so "PICKY" about hardware.
