Hi Emmanuel_uk,

Yes, of course, my system works nicely
with the modem connection now

I was just commenting in my previous post
that even if one puts the following in the boot.local file,

modprobe /lib/modules/

this will not work if one has rebooted a system and there's
no Intel536 listing under the lsmod command.

Instead, I just put modprobe Intel536 in the boot.local file
and this worked.

Again, thanks, Emmanuel_uk, for your consistency in paying
attention to this issue.

I am with you, my mistake, the instruction with modprobe must be without the ko at the end of Intel536ep,

it is a quirk of the system

Again, thanks
You are welcome
