I found a link. It's a bit long but it explains the problem pretty well. I did find where someone having this problem had a bad modem. Does it work in another OS like windoze or something?

Here's the link:

Post back what you find out.

Thanks dalek for all your patience.
My modem is working right now in XP. My settings are just like your previous post, except mine was set to CHAP. I forgot to change it back to the original settings. It is now PAP. And, under DNS, it says localdomain. Still doesn't work though. I'm gonna go look at the link you posted.

Can you post the contents of the file ip-up in the /etc/ppp directory. I want to compare it to mine and see if there is a difference there.

Patience? I want that thing fixed. Where's my hammer? I'll be right back...... Uh oh, I don't know where you live. I'll find some puter to beat on.

Works in XP. Guess that eliminates a hardware problem then huh.

I had a brain fart. Pardon the expression. If you can, find out what port the modem is on in windows on the machine that you are running Linux on. Don't swap the modem to another rig or move the cables. Post what it is, COM1, COM2 etc.

I think it is pointing to the wrong port.

I'm guessing that you have another serial port connected to something else or it loops back when not connected to anything.

We need to fix this before I blow up Google.

Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you. I got pulled away last night and couldn't get back to the computer.
In windows, the modem is now at COM 4, PCI slot 2. Note: It was at COM 5, but I did change it trying anything that might make it work. IIRC, that would be ttyS3 in linux. But that doesn't work. I can't remember the error I get, but is something like "kppp can't use ttyS3. Contact the administrator to correct this problem". I'll post back with the actual error later.

Contents of file ip-up:

Quote:
[root@localhost ppp]# file ip-up
ip-up: Bourne-Again shell script text executable
[root@localhost ppp]#
Thanks again.

When I try to connect with kppp, useing ttyS3, I get this error:

Quote:
kppp can not find:
/dev/ttyS3
Please make sure you have setup your modem device properly and/or adjust the location of the modem device on the modem tab of the setup dialog.
If I try to query modem I get " Unable to open modem".

Look at this link and see if this works. This particular modem likes to be on a specific port for some reason. You may be able to move it to another slot. I can't remember if that will make it change the port or not. It likes to be on com5 and Linux don't like it there for some reason.

Here's the link.

It says for SuSE but this is command line and should still work. You may have to install the setserial program though.

Post back of this helps. The guy posting recommended a external serial but you may can get this to work. He did.

Am I reading this right? All I have to do is run setserial again? Well, I'll try this tomorrow, and let you know what happened. I just don't have time right now. If this works, I'll be mad at myself. Oh well, I said it would be something simple.

Thanks again dalek!
