A quality modem like USRobotics will work in a few seconds after
plugged in, a free serial port, without even rebooting.

You've asked a FAQ so I'm posting a "pre-recorded" message. It's only
fair. :-) Your post is either about "what modem do I use?" or about
the notorious "winmodems" aka "losemodems".
If you need a new modem or are pulling out hair trying to get that
"losemodem" working try MultiTech's MT56* line of modems:
We've had great success with these at our clients that use *nix and
OS/2 systems. You can find these at several online stores as well as
your local computer resellers. These are a mid-range price at over
$100. Low end modems are usually under $100 and "high end" modems are
usually over $200.
More information about modems can be found in the modem section of
"The Unix Hardware Buyer HOWTO" at linuxdoc.org:
Read it, especially parts 7.3 and 7.4. Then go and start reading here
for a gritty and humorous treatise of internal vs external modems:
For information on many modems pre-tested with Linux see this:
Note that the above site *does not* just cover "losemodems". Many
real modems appear in the "Big List" there. Real, external modems
will work pretty much anywhere a modem is needed.
If you *insist* on using that "losemodem" then see this site:

But any serial port connected external modem will work, I'm using a
USRobotics right now.
I'm looking at putting a robot on the net here using radio.
Right now, the best combination of cost/features/ease seems to be
half-duplex radio modem, like the Abacom RTcom-RS232. This is a
simple radio modem, which connects to an RS232 port with a 3-wire
So... what can people advise me regarding protocols? Will plain ol'
PPP work? Can PPP end up holding the modem in transmit mode for a
long time, in this application? The AX.25 HOWTO gives me the
impression that it wants to have a driver for your radio, which
is more than this approach needs.
So... where do I look for information? What advice to people have?
