I don't know much about that particular modem, but I do know that there's a high likely hood that, since it's v.92 and pci, it's probably a winmodem. I don't know this for sure though, but I wouldn't rule it out. cat /proc/pci and see if your kernel can see it and that there isn't a problem. Also, if you find that it is a winmodem, check to see if there's a linmodem driver for it.

Ok...... here's what i dug up using cat /proc/pci ...

Communication controller: Conexant HSF 56k HsGi Modem (rev1).
IRQ5. MAster Capable. Latency=64........ and soo on i think this is what i'm looking for as far as interpreting...that's another story...hahahaha Where to go from here? About the problem with winmodems tho...at that /dev/ttys0 it doesn't give me any error messages...but when it stays at initializing modem and it freezes.....maybe with that irq settings...but if any brainstorms coem to mind just shoot em here thanks.

if I were you I'd check out this site:
http://www.modem-help.co.uk/chips/conhsf.html#linux

I didn't get to do much research on whether or not it was a winmodem, but I'm pretty sure it is :'(...oh well...hopefully you can get it to be a lin modem

good luck...post what happens

Mandrake and modems

Hi,

I Had the same problem, now cured. Download the driver from Conexant and Marc Bouchet,
hsflinmodem-5.03.03.L2mbsibeta02052600-1_mdk82.i586.rpm.
It worked like magic for me, I'm typing this with Mandrake
