I have increased the points by 10 cuz thats all i have lol.  Well shivsa the site u gave me is from what i see totally based on a windows system of drivers, maybe not and if so can u show me the linux drivers?

owensleftfoot that site does help a little but i cant see any reference to my actual modem.  Could someone give me some expert advice on installing the modem step by step maybe?

Hi,

Have you tried the hardware info section in YAST2 (yast2 > hardware > hardware information)?  It *may* give you more detail on the actual chipset used by that modem, but only if it detetcts it - which it doesn't always manage.  Then you could try at www.linmodems.org, which is a web site devoted to getting windows modems working under Linux.

What does "lspci" tell you?

Did you look it up on SuSE's support hardware database at SuSE's web site?

Another option is to go here : http://linmodems.org/ and download the scanmodem tool.  It should give a definitive answer on the chip set involved.  Once that's identified, you should be able to find your modem there, or at http://start.at/modem  From the research I did, it looks like it could be a Rockwell HCF chipset.

However, bear in mind that it is possible that this particular modem isn't supported under linux.  Given that modems are so cheap these days, it may make sense to find one which is supported.
