Hello there!

So here i am with a freshly installed SuSE Linux on my hdb and an installation of Win2k on hda, both living happily together...and suddenly a pleasant surprise! My isdn TA actually WORKS under LINUX! It is configured almost automatically...everything's i start KInternet...and here i am on the net browsing away and checking my mail!

Just like a dream...that suddenly turns into a nightmare!

As soon as i try to change my connection to configure my account with another provider...BANG! it gives me CHAP identification failed!

Anyway to make a long story short, almost by mistake, i checked the bios, then my hardware configuration on win2000 and on Linux and it appears that the built-in USB hub of the mainboard and my isdn TA share the same IRQ! That was something i had never realized under win2k, but why does it create conflict under Linux? And why should they share the same IRQ?

In the bios i even disabled irq for usb, or forced the irq of the isdn TA from the one of the usb, but it seems useless! whatever irq i set the isdn TA, the usb hub follows it! If i set the TA on 10, the hub sets itself automatically on 10 and so on...

Here is my config:

Minboard: Asus P2 (VIA chipset) upgraded with Viatech 4.29 drivers

BIOS: Award (Fresh from flashing)

Memory: 128 SDRAM

Pointing devices: Logitech MarbleMouse USB using its PS/2 adapter

slot 1,2,3: EMPTY
slot 4: Target World 2000 isdn TA

PCI 2: Creative sbwave 64

AGP: Creative Blaster Riva TNT 16Mb (NVidia Chipset)

If someone could tell me what i have done wrong i would really appreciate it!

Thanks in advance,

the one thing i,ve found with suse 7.1 is that you need to do all you network configuring with yast 1, yast 2 must have some bugs left in it, because every time i try it, i get all sorts of odd network problems.

Question what about the irq?

But what about the irq sharing? Is it normal for the isdn TA to share the same irq with a mainboard built-in feature such as the USB ports?
