I'm unable to get Linux to talk to my Mwave 28.8K modem.
I have tried Slackware Linux 1.2.8 and 1.3.85 (to get around some
"Unknown PCI device..." messages on the boot of a 1.2.8 kernel).
I've tried booting from a floppy and via Loadlin (hoping that DOS would
have initialized the modem correctly). MINICOM does not get report any
acknowledgement from the modem. I think I have set up Linux correctly as
I can very easily establish PPP connections with my old external 2400
bps modem connected to either of my two external serial ports (/dev/cua1
and /dev/cua2). I can even run a remote X application at this miserable
The IRQ/Address/UART(16550A) for /dev/cua0 (where my internal Mwave
modem is connected) are all correctly recognized by Linux on every boot.
My machine is an IBM Aptiva with Windows 95 and Linux in separate
Any info on anything that I can try to get the Mwave modem working under
Linux would be greatly appreciated.
