From what I found on this website http://www.idir.net/~gromitkc/pci_list.html
your modem appears to be a winmodem. There are probably drivers that you can install to get it working. I have found it easier just to buy new hardware modems that work out of the box (in linux). Hardware modems work fine in Windows too, but they are usually a tiny bit more expensive. It is good to know, though, that there are drivers out there for winmodems, but there are not drivers for every chipset. And when you do find the drivers you'll probably need to compile them. You'll need to be sure you have the libraries required to compile them.
I'm suprised that no one answered you before now.
: Here is the modem i'm using:
: Conexant HSF V92 56k Data Fax PCI Modem
: Here are the steps i took to configuring it:
: cat /proc/pci
: (took the port# and irq # info)
: setserial /dev/ttyS2 uart 16550A port 0xc000 irq 3
: echo setserial /dev/ttyS2 uart 16550A port 0xc000 irq 3 >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local
: I'm told that my modem should be configured now, when I type
: setserial -bg /dev/ttyS2
: I see:
: /dev/ttyS2 at 0xfcc0 (irq = 5) is a 16550A
: However, when I query the modem (I'm using kppp) using ttyS2 it tells me that my modem is busy. Can anyone help me? Thanks
