    Linux modem

    Locked

    by silverwaters08 ·

    I’m using Ubuntu Hoary Hedgehog 5.04. I had already installed gnomeppp and set up a dial-up connection but I’m still having trouble with the modem (internal). My modem is listed on the Device Manager, but when I click autodetect modem I receive a message “modem not found.” The first modem I have tried was conexant–I don’t know the name of the manufacturer–then I tried Cnet but still, it was not detected. Should I install a driver for my modem to be detected?

    Suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      You probably want to look into ‘linmodems’
      (linux support for WinModems). These modems are
      hardly modems, they more look like a sound card
      where a kernel driver tries to make it work like
      a modem. The next reference might help:

      Esp. Connexant has troubles with more linux
      environments, You have to buy another driver
      from them although you can use the windows
      version delivered with it.

      Kind Regards,

      has tools to detect the modem, and verify driver availablitiy, will tell you which driver is needed.
      the site maintains links to most known drivers for each modem chipset.
