PCtel? Internal of external modem? Do you know if it is a "WinModem"?

Hello Anoopp,

To help you we need more details, which Kernel release do you use, did you installed any additional drivers for this type modem.

Can you use your modem with other programs?

And yes the PCTel chipset on mainboards, add-in or PCI cards are mostly software modems, which are developed for Windows. Some of this software modems work pretty good with Linux, but most will stay death.
