Titel: PCI modem recognized but what device is it?  BeitragVerfasst am: 06.08.2006, 01:16 Uhr

[Using 2006 Easter RC4]

I have an Intel 536EP PCI modem which is recognized fine by Kanotix (KInfoCenter lists it), but when I want to set up dial-up networking with KPPP, what device will it be, since /dev/modem is not pre-defined?

I've queried a few possible devices with KPPP, but they are all "unknown modem". Will it be a pseudo-serial device (even though it's a PCI card) or something else? (MEPIS 6.0 recognizes it and links /dev/modem to /dev/536ep0) The Kanotix utilities all seem to want a serial device specified.

Any help to resolve this would be most welcome.

Go to Kmenue --> Kanotix --> Network/Internet --> My PPP Conf

Choose your provider, and whatever else it asks you (it has been awhile and can't remember the rest of the setup but is pretty much common sense)

Try whatever com port it is on i.e.

ttyS0 = com1
ttyS1 = com2
ttyS2 = com3

Thanks for the reply, piper.

But that's the core of the problem - how do I find out which device the card corresponds to? I've experimented querying ttyS0-17 within KPPP and got nowhere. Could the lspci (or other) command tell us this?

The Kanotix My PPP Conf asks for a device, which defaults to /dev/ttyS0. Other than that it gives no guidance what you could type in - at least KPPP gives a long list of likely devices to choose from. There's surely got to be a better way than trying 'em all! Mit den Augen rollen

It seems the driver you would need does not compile on newer kernels. Mepis uses a very old one (2.6.15) can not be really compared to newer ones.

Thanks for the information, Kano and piper. That link is incredibly useful for reference.

Under Windows, I checked and the modem card is seen as COM3, which would correspond to /dev/ttyS2 presumably. It's identified by Windows as a Creatix V.92 DSP Data-Fax-Modem, type CTX402_8. According to the reference, I see the DSP modems have a patchy chance of working under Linux. (Booting DOS first? That's would be fun!)

I also have an Ambient Creatix V.90 HaM Data/Fax/Voice PCI (aka "Intel HaM") in another PC which could be tested some time. Would that one have a better chance of working, I wonder?

A hardware modem, connected via serial port, is the failsafe option. That will rarely let you down.
