Can someone recommend me a 56k modem that supports Linux? When I checked 3COM/US Robotic site, they only offer modems for ms windows only. BOCA and Motorola also offer modems for ms windows only.

If you have a choice try to stick to BOCA, we have been experiencing a drop in connections using the supra modems.
It could be our ISP, but on the other hand using USR (same ISP) it NEVER drops..
Now figure....

Does Boca modem support linux? I went to their site and they don't say anything about linux compatible. What model is your modem?

Modems doesnt have to be "Linux compatible" it is just a serial device. However, DSP based modems such as USR WinModem and IBM MWAVE will NOT work, but if you get a standard external hayes compatible modem, you wont have any trouble.

If you want to use 56 modem with linux set is as not pnp or set your pnp options in bios operating system installed not pnp.
You don't need 56 modem because it is 33.3 modem with compresion and downloading compresed filies will be the same as 33.3 modem.
