Unhappy Smoothwall - internal modem connection!

Hi guys out there

Could someone please tell me..why my internal Motorola 56K modem doesnt work with SMoothwall 1.0 ??

In the smoothwall installation its strange because setting my external netwrok (internet) as RED , it never asked me for the drivers of the internal modem....thats why, when i want to connect to the internet , my modem never ever connectsss....!

Is Intyernal modem working with this SMOOTHWALL, ?
or just only cables, external modem, isdn, or adsl? only work with it?
If someone can tell me a good reason please...gimme more information about it.
I will appreciate your help...
Thank you

It will happily work with internal hardware modems,
but winmodems need added drivers to make them work...

Have a look at this Aussie site..
