Dear Experts,
Im new to Linux, and I installed the operting system without and serious problems except the modem, after the installation done I enabled the PNP in the BIOS setup.

However I tried to configure the dial up connection, I found nothing reflects the Modem which is runing perfectly under win98.

I would be greatful for any help and idea which might help to sort out and get my Linux machin connected to the Internet

awaiting for your help
regards
Senan

What is the make and model of you modem.  Is it a WinModem or a full modem?

Try viewing the file /etc/sysconfig/hwconf

Does this file show a modem detected?

Senan,

Go the www.linmodem.org

There you will find a link to "Conexant drivers".

This is more than likely the type of driver you need. Check out the  HCF (controllerless) driver

Good luck.

uname -r will give you the Kernal version

uname -a will give you a lot of information

Enter man uname to see all the information you can get.

Hi,

What I think you should do is configure wvdial this will auto look for your modem and it will set it all up for you the way you can do this is by typeing in a terminal the following:

[Damo@linux /etc]# /usr/bin/wvdialconf wvdial.conf

Then it will start searching for your modem on all ports if it detects your modem it will set everything up the you will need to edit the wvdail.conf which will be in the same directory which you entered the above command

well I hope this helped you.
