Thank you all, thanks to this a total n00b (first linux install) was able to get his modem working, now the only thing thats left is that pesky HP cd-writer 8200 external.

When I rebooted the modem didn't work, but all I had to do was retype all the things in /etc/modprobe.conf.

I had the exact..

Same problem, ALSA had wiped out my settings in the files to mod and so once I re-entered the info, all was well.

Still no sound though!!

Unhappy

I had the same problem. Following the instruction steps seemed to work fine at first. Then I tried to set up a connection, and when testing it I could hear the modem dial but get no access (specified the wrong password for my ISP). Now when I try to set up the connection again, I get the error message 'no reply' and when querying the modem with kppp it gave me 'modem busy'.
And the settings in my config files were still there...

Question

Okay.. well my Lucent Winmodem drivers have been working great but now I have another question:

I'm going to update my kernel with a new version and install kernel-source as well, but before I do what do I need to do with the present installation of my Lucent Winmodem drivers? Is there a way to remove them easily or "uninstall" so to speak before I install the new kernel v.? (I'm running Mandrake 10 Official and I'm just updating the kernel & kernel-source by installing from mdk rpm's)

I'll need to go through the install process that Tormented outlined in this thread again with the new kernel-source for the new v. so do I need to remove all the files prior to installing the new v. or should I just leave them there, install the new kernel & kernel-source and then follow the install process from Tormented again and it will rewrite the existing Lucent Winmodem drivers without conflict(s)?

I had no issues going from 2.4 to 2.6.3.7, all I had to do was renter the info into the modproad.conf and preload files.

Hi _invader. The files found in ltmodem-2.6.3-4mdk.tgz, are they only usable with MDK? I'm now running FC2 and am desperately trying to get something...anything to work with my Lucent winmodem. If I follow your prescribed instructions, substituting various folders for those found in FC2, should it also work?

windeath: I'm not sure if those files would work, but nevertheless, try and give it a shot. As a last option, you may consider re-compiling the code for your kernel (though it can't be guaranteed it'll work either). Generally speaking, 2.6 drivers would be compatible across the board with 2.6.x kernels etc. I think the source files are found within that file as well, else it should be on that same site. Cheers.

dang it. i'm feeling lazy and haven't changed to the 2.6 series yet, and since i have a lucent modem, i really couldn't anyway. now i'm gonna feel like a slacker until i do it.

20 minutes later.
ok. it works. i already had a 2.6.0 compiled and booting on my system from months ago, so i just had to do the module thing and reboot into the kernel. it said i didn't have ppp support, so i went into menuconfig. it said i did. i had to load the ppp module with modprobe. what an outrage. wine crashed. that's weird. i've got the kernel module autoloader built in. i guess i'll have to edit modules conf and crap like that. depmod -a and modprobe didn't find that "other directory" i made.
i guess sound is next.
at least that 2.6 lucent code is done, and works in different kernels.

a recompile got my sound and other stuff working.
this is all i get from trying to load an old wine that i use all the time. anybody know anything about this. it works fine with my other kenels, keep in mind.
i'm going back to 2.4.x

Ive got a question, ive tried both Tormented's and _invader's methods of installing the drivers, on Mdrake 10 community edition. The drivers install, but when it comes to dialing out using kppp, the modem responds and hangs on the expecting OK signal. I have used the query modem on kppp but that is blank. In addition to this, it says that it cannot use /dev/modem so i had to choose /dev/tty0 to use the modem.

Any ideas?
Any help will be much appreciated as this has been annoying me for the past 5 mths since i moved to linux.
