I have a PCI modem, MDP3858SP-A Voice/Fax/Data 56K, etc.
All I need is a generic PCI modem driver/kernel-patch for Linux I don't care if it has the voice or fax bit, I just need the data working....Can anyone tell me where to find it????

I hate to tell you this, but nearly all pci modems are 'winmodems' and will not work with linux. Even if it doesn't say 'winmodem' and somebody at the store told you it wasn't, I would still guess that it is. I haven't yet seen a pci modem that was hardware based. See if you can exchange it for a isa non-winmodem (look for info on the box that it will work with dos, NT, etc, or get an external.

You see Swwelsh I realise that actually, I don't want another modem this one is very good, does me fine, Might just have to stick my Isa one in as well anyway, because I can't seem to get NT to recongise this one either, not even as a COM port!!!  Not to worry.  Still waiting for an answer though...such as the fact it wont't work in NT either...

1. In windows look for the IRQ, DMA and port of your modem.

2. Whit the isapnp and isapnpdump utilities look for the information of your modem.

3. create a device character whit mknod and edit the properties of the device and that is all.

you can experiment some problems if the IRQ and DMA in the bios are set to auto in the PNP section. you can set it manualy.

Thanks dmurillo, I feel like a dill for not knowing that, since the PCI probe detects it, and I can view info on it.  But anyway I sold that modem in a system anyway, so I've got my 33.6K.  But since you answered you've got the points
