Prolink is the seller and possibly the assembler of the modem, but it is
very doubtful that they actually made the chips. Conexant (was PCTel
and Rockwell), Agere (was Lucent), 3Com (was US Robotics), and Intel
(was Cirrus and Ambient) are the major chipset vendors. IBM and
Motorola also have made controllerless modems, but they are not as
prevalent as the others.

You might try the "scanModem" script from <http://www.linmodems.org/>.
Or do "lspci" and it will tell you the vendor of the chipset. The above
link has info about the major vendors. As an example, for the Lucent LT
Winmodem in my laptop, lspci shows:
00:03.1 Serial controller: Lucent Microelectronics LT WinModem (rev 01)
Note that some distributions may come with the drivers you need, while
for others you will need to download them from the Linmodems site.
