 The soft modem Subsystem operates under a controller
   8086:24c6 82801DB ICH4
 capable of supporting under Linux AT LEAST modem Subsystem chips from
manufacturers:

        Broadcom
        AgereSystems
        Conexant
        Intel
        Smartlink

        Smartlink software in ALSA mode may support this modem
 The Subsystem PCI id does not itself identify the modem Codec.

  Driver snd-intel8x0m  may enable codec acquisition
  /proc/asound lacks an mc97 codec file.

 Beginning check for older ac97_codec modems.
 An older ac97_modem codec was not detected.

slamr: mc97 codec is CXT30
slamr: slamr0 is ICH4 card.
 The softmodem Codec is:  CXT30
 Checking through information gathered from LinModem ARCHIVES
 Modem codec information on Subsystem 103c:3080 is not in the records.
 DisAgreement between slamr diagostic and Archive.  Using slamr
diagnostic: CODEC=CXT30
 The modem has a Conexant codec: CXT30
 and there is support for the modem controller: 8086:24c6 82801DB ICH4
 Some Linux Distributions include the hsfmodem driver.
 Search your packages information for "hsfmodem" and "Conexant".
 If not found there, download a hsfmodem package from
http://www.linuxant.com .

 For 2.4.n kernels, If there is not an exact match your kernel version:
2.6.9-x1
 then kernel-sources must be prepared as described in
Modem/DriverCompiling.txt
 before the hsfmodem driver compiling can be successfull.
 For recent  kernel-source-2.4.6 ,configuration steps are not
necessary.

 == Checking PCI IDs through modem chip suppliers ==

 Vendors 127a and 14f1 are Conexant, inheritor of  Rockwell modem
technology. There are also Conexant chipsets
 in some modems from vendors 158b - Allied Data Tech., 1024 - Zenith
,141a - Apache Micro and 148d Digicom Systems.
 With respect to software support there are two main types,
hcfpcimodem* and hsfmodem* .
 Download drivers from http://www.Linuxant.com/drivers/

 At   http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/resources.html#conexant  , there
are scripts aiding installation:
      For HSF modems.
      For HCF modems.
 There is additional Conexant information written to Modem/Conexant.txt

 == Checking PCI IDs through modem chip suppliers ==

 Vendor=8086 is Intel, Inc. producing HaM and 536ep host controller
free (HCF) modems, 537 soft modem
 and AC97 and MC97 controllers managing a varierty of non-Intel soft
modem Subsystems.
 These subSystems often have PCI_IDs assigned by the modem assembler,
rather than the chip provider.
 Download available drivers through:
http://developer.intel.com/design/modems/support/drivers.htm  with
Intel-537 types at:

http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df/Filter_Results.asp?selCat=...
 Also check at: http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/Intel/537/
 for beta releases and perhaps Already compiled drivers for some Linux
distributions
 A very detailed installation report cogent to 537 type modems is at:

http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/archive-fifth/msg00541.html
 Setup call id with:
        Type 1 : When the phone line is not in use
at+vcid=1
        Type 2 : When the phone line is already in use on a call      at+pcw=0

GREPping for an inserted PCMCIA modem with filter:        ommunication
 If a PCMCIA modem is currently inserted and the sockets activated by
    /etc/init.d/pcmcia start
 then the PCMCIA bridge is NOT transparent.

 If the modem is known to have a Lucent digital signal processing
chipset,
 then PCMCIA.tar.gz variant assembled by Joern Wustenfeld is necessary,
 rather than the standard ltmodem-8.31a10.tar.gz at
http://ltmodem.heby.de/
GCCversion=3.3.4

Update : now online with Netzero under Xandros. Quite respectable
speed, too!
