interesting that you "solved " your problem by switching to redhat. i "solved" mine by using an external modem...not a second's delay. still leaves the original question unanswered though!! i wonder just what the problem is....when i have time i might download the driver again and try it all once more

I had the same problem, and when I tried using Kppp, it worked fine. The 'unable to remove /dev/536ep' error still happens, and the Mandrake Connection Wizard/Hardware Browser still can't find the modem, but it's apparently still there, as dialing in with Kppp still worked fine. Cheers

Hi! After trying and trying I changed distribution. I changed Mandrake with RedHat 9.0 and now the modem “works”. When I start the connection (I am using kppp) everything works fine: the modem responds, does the hand shaking, etc. but when I try to open a page everything goes so slowly. It takes almost two minutes to load Google.

Any ideas? Thanks

For every one who is having the error message to do with no having sufficient rights to remover (rm) the 536ep driver, i have found a viable solution, am not sure if it has been mentioned her or not but I do this:

1, install the precompiled driver and ignore the error.

2, remove the modules from the kernel, and the /dev/536ep is removed.

# rmmod 536ep

# rmmod 536epcore

(remove the core second as the serial driver is dependent on it and therefore it cannot be removed with the serial loaded)

(This even works if you restart your system after installing the driver so don't worry about any script errors)

3, follow the readme file on what to do if the scripts fail, ignoring,

# insmod 536epcore
# insmod 536ep

I know this will work with Mandrake 9.1 but I haven't been able to produce a workable download speed however, am still trying.

i'm only a newbie as you can probably guess and I am posting this to try and help others from avoiding my mistakes.
