Angry


I just put one of my boxes up with Redhat 7.0 with all the updates and I installed an Actiontec 56k. This is supposed to be a Tier 1 card. I get this message that says "Sorry, can't open modem" or "Sorry, the modem is busy" this is when I use /dev/modem in the Kppp option. I preformed the symbolic link, I also typed in the commands that I was supposed to. Also when I run /proc/pci the modem shows up in the list with the right IO and IRQ. I am not sure if this is the issues, but the Dev number is 9, and when I run /proc/interrupts it shows that Dev 9 is eth0. I am not sure, but please help.
I have been working on it for 2 days, I have worked on other issues longer, but I know that it is Linux and I have to work for things, that is why I like it. But I want to surf with my Linux box and through Windows out one. Does anyone have or has anyone run into this issues. I have to go back to dial-up, becuase I am one of the northpoint victims.

Thanks Bill

I think I found it, but I will try

I think the issues that there is IRQ conflict between eth0 and my modem, the interrupt is coming up with a 9 which in the /proc/pci is the device number for the modem. I will try to remove the eth0 card first and if that works, I will try to reorder the cards and see what happens.. I will keep you informed

Well, I am online with my Actiontec modem, it took awhile but I got it to work. Now the only issue is speed. I am only able to connect a either 28800 or 26400. Does anyone know how I can get more speed out of my modem? Well, since no one has helped the other times, I will post the information so I can help others

I feel your pain

I would be very thankful if you could post some info about how you got your Actiontec modem to work. I'm having the exact same problem, and have searched seemingly everwhere for an answer with no success... I've only found other people with the same problem with no sollution.

Thanks
