Is there an easier way to do this?? MasterC has been offline. He is the only one that would help me. and jon. I don't know what's with him. whansard is offline. So that means i'm lost.I always knew that i could'nt do this. I'm not smart at all. Maybe just a little stupid. Nah i don't think so. This modem is driving me insane. Can someone please reply back with some information on how to do this?? I might just go to sleep. I thought i had it today but i guess not. Thanks. Just reply back.

Many years ago I saw a movie 'Cool Hand Luke' and there was a line in it that I will never forget:

"What we have here is a failure to communicate!"


This was intended as a leg pull... there was no intention to offend. With all due respect to the parties involved.

Evenin Derek. I was just reading over all this. Sounds like you are getting real close, just give it a little bit of time, try not to rush Jon, he appears to have gotten you pretty far. Check out the link that Whansard posted about the person setting this up.

All the information you need is right here now, you just have to learn how to apply it to your situation. Good luck.

Cool

MasterC, It says no modem found on your system. It did not detect any hardware on my computer. I really don't think it worked. If you have any information on this please reply back. Thanks.

ok whansard. I'm relax now. Can you post something so i know how you fix that message that says. redhat-config-network: No modem found on your system?? This is what i did i went to network. I believe that would be in the main menu under system settings or system tools. Well it's one of them. I have to check. I do not know how to fix that message. Can you help me?? Please reply back. Thanks whansard.

Did you follow the last set of instructions JonG passed to you? - they can be found here.
(Note: you'll need to scroll to the bottom of the page - response 81)

JonG said: " The answers are right in front of you. We edited modules.conf to load those 2 up everytime you boot up. It didn't work, just like I thought it wouldn't.

It's NO big deal. Just load them again and then proceed with the second half of my post above..... Remember the commands that you typed to load them? I know you can do this own your own... 2 little commands that you have already typed before and that are listed right above.....

I will make a script for you that will simplify that task. I'll give it to you tommorrow, if I don't shoot myself before then.....Until then, you will have to load both those EVERYTIME you boot into Red Hat before anything....

The WHOLE reason why it said it couldn't find a modem, is cause the modules weren't loaded..... You are going to have to start trouble shooting some stuff on your own. There won't always be someone there to bail you out of a rough spot....

Everything you need is right there.. I will check back tommorrow to see how it is going. If you are lucky, I will check back tonite.."

JonG has invested a lot of time and effort in helping you - don't ditch him when you are so close.

I will wait for him to come online. I will never ditch him. I always want him to help me. I just wait for the script. As of right now. I don't understand. He should be on at the other site around 7 or 8pm. (Eastern Time).
