I recently got a modem working on my linux system (in Ringback mode),
but I am experiencing a problem that I think is a modem problem, and
NOT a problem with Linux.
I have a USR Sportster 28.8K modem on my linux system, and have a
14.4K SupraFax Modem at home. I can connect to the linux box, but
usually after 2 - 5 tries. What is confusing, is my 14.4K modem
displays the "CONNECT 19200" message when it "connects", but that shouldn't
be happening with a 14.4K modem!!!??? When it does connect in that way,
it will not work - I must hang up, and try again. When I finally do get
a TRUE connection - it is at 12K, and all works correctly.
I have tried to set the "S" registers to exclude all rates except 12K,
but it still "connects" at 19200, and then fails.
Has anyone else seen such a problem? Has anyone figured out how to
