notebook- usb modem

by tech_wiz03 In reply to notebook- usb modem

I beleave the Dell uses on onboard "winmodem" which is NOT a Modem by anyones but MS standards linux is compatible with almost all com port external modems. USB modems are a different story because first you have to make sure that your USB driver works with linux, and secondly supports modem style devices. You realy need to goto and check out their howto's
