Hi ppl, Im new to linux so I may be asking some stupid questions here.  Im running WinXP/MDK 10.0 dual boot and am having a helluva time getting my
modem (it's not a winmodem) to work on MDK.  I've tried the manufacturers special install instructions (their commands didn't work,due to me no doubt
doing something wrong), the new connection wizard from the control panel, kppp setup and nothing's worked.  When I query the modem, it tells me its busy.
This is the same modem im using for my XP partition, (busy signal because of that?).  XP says my modem's on COM 4, so I set everything in MDK to COM 4.
(although I've tried other ports with no results)

These are the instructions from the modem manufacturer:

type:

   
cat  /proc/pci

I did that, here are the results:


cat /proc/pci

      Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe5000000 [0xe57fffff]



Next was to take note of the modems IRQ and fisrt I/O range for the serial port and type in:

setserial /dev/ttyS3 uart 16550A port 0xdc00 irq 10        
(ttyS3 being COM 4)

I entered this and got a bad command message, several times, making sure I was paying attention to spaces.


I tried to get all the info requested at the top of this board, but was only partially suucessful, here's my results:

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  My modem is a ZOOM modem (PCI, controller based, internal, if this matters).

I've tried the manufacturers special install instructions

I would follow these instructions. Can you post any error messages that you received while trying to install the drivers?

Thanks for the reply x86. I finally got the problem solved.  First part of the prob was that I "accidentally" discovered that setserial wasn't installed.  In stalled it and setserial started working, but I still got the busy signal.  

When I installed my ZOOM modem, I left my original winmodem in so i thought maybe that was interfering somehow and took it out.  started back up, still had the same problem, then I got a wild hair and decided to install the new modem in the originals slot,(which I should have done in the first place) an tried again.

At first I still had the busy sig, so I ran cat /proc/pci again and it showed my irq as 11 instead of 10 this time. I ran seterial again with the irq set to 11 and that cured the problem. Dialed right up, been fine ever since, except if I restart or shut down, it doesnt save my settings and I have to run setserial again before I can connect, I'm researching it now, but its a minor annoyance.  

One things for certain, solving this prob was educational. (took me 3 nites I'm ashamed to admit)

Good. Documentation is excellent for Linux and if you just follow the instructions you are in good shape biggrin.gif Your learning curve is improving.
