Rocwell HSF Modem

Downloaded HSF modem RPM from Conexant; it seemed to install in Mandrake 9.0 beta w/o any problems; but,/de/tty SHFSO,or,
/DEV/cua HSFO/ doesn't cause anything to happen. I suspect that the driver was not the right one for my kernel. I don't have an external modem. The internal one obviously works on my Windows drive. Just cant get Redhat or Mandrake to find it. On windows it takes abou 10 sec to click on PCI serial controller, add hardware,by stating inf program is in CD rom.

Need some HELP PLease. Cd Music , Scientific programs, games, all work just NO Internet despite having a brilliant array of browers.

Thanks...frustrated in Georgia...

Welcome to LQ.

It's good to see that you've researched and found the 'drivers' RPM file. Just one observation, you state that it seems to install in Mandy 9.0b but doesn't work, have you tried it in Mandy 8.2... the current 'stable' release? If it works in that, then it's more likely to be something in Mandy than the Conexant file. Oh, and I'm not sure of the status of Conexant/Rockwell modems, but many PCI-Winmodem manufacturers have a tendency to change the chips without changing the model or any other features. Are you sure that you have the correct file?
