Need Help with my PCMCIA modem

Post by Louis Ciott » Tue, 10 Nov 1998 04:00:00



I am having trouble getting the cardmgr to correctly identify my PCMCIA
modem.  For some reason it thinks it is a Memory card.  The modem is an
actiontec 33.6 modem with a lucent chipset.  does anybody know how to fix
this??

Thanks

                             ^^^^^^

http://www.lucent.com ??? JUST KIDDING! i doubt you'd find support
there... but you can look for some clues:

1) does the modem work under Win9x?
2) does it respond to AT&V to report status?
3) does it have a specific driver for Win9x?
4) does actiontec have a web site?
5) does the modem have a manual or do you have the box it came in? in
other words, is there any printed material to indicate that the modem will
work with other operating systems?
6) did you read David Hind's PCMCIA-HOWTO under the /usr/doc/pcmcia
directory?

Quote:>3) does it have a specific driver for Win9x?

    If you are asking if it is a winmodem, then no, I contacted an
technition, and they said it is "definatly" not a win modem

Quote:>4) does actiontec have a web site?

    yes I went there....not much help

Quote:>5) does the modem have a manual or do you have the box it came in? in

Actiontec said it works under dos, windows 95/8, macs

    yes, but either I cannot under stand how to fix it, or I am doing
something wrong

thanks again
