Linux can't see my USB ADSL Modem
Posted on 2004-09-10
I'm new to this whole Linux thing, but I'm determined to learn it and get away from Micro$oft Windows. I've just downloaded and installed a version of Fedora Core 2 on my PC and things are going swimmingly, except that I can't get my broadband to work. The first time I installed it, my USB modem was listed as a device under Network Settings, but my network card wasn't, so I tried a re-install. Every install since, has picked up my Network card but not my USB modem. The modem appears when I check the Hardware Browser, but I can't seem to do anything with it.
I'm assuming I need to get it listed in the Network Settings window along with my network card, but I can't figure out how. I've tried creating a new device in there, but there doesn't appear to be any options for USB devices. I've had a search around the web, but to no avail.
Somebody save me from this nightmare and help me get my Linux up and running.
