Wink Modem problems

Any help...

I run dual boot with Win XP SP2...I've installed my favorite linux Mandrake 10.1 Official...I have constant problem with configuring my network.
My hardware is Sagem F@st 800 E2 WA FR modem.
I'm using ADSL INTERNET connection of French provider Wanadoo.
No problems with pasting configuration details...but with bringing up the booting operation and configuring after. System is refusing to recognize device and to connect to the net....

Please any suggestions....This happened to me also with Mandrake 10.1 Community download...

Thx for any help....

You probably don't have the right driver for the modem.

At the Sagem website they have drivers for linux
Supported Operating Systems
The SAGEM F@st™ 800 modem can run on all the usual platforms:

- Microsoft Windows 98, 98SE, 2000, ME, XP
- MacOS 8.6, 9, X
- Linux
Check out this thread - description of the modem and the driver

Also Check this Out - the driver installed on suse
