It is a software modem, but it's not for window only.  However, there are at
least two versions of PCTel chip.  One is standalone and one is tied to the
cmi8738 codec.  You need the correct driver for the chip.  Download both
drivers at http://linnix.com and run setpnp to detect and load the correct
driver.

Does anyone know if a modem of this type work with linux.

It does not seem to be allocated to a physical COM port. Windows Drivers
seem to set up a virtual COM port to access.

This is how the motherboard doco describes the modem:
----------------------------
Fax/modem DAA Module
56 Kbps Fax/modem DAA module
Supports V.90, V.34, V.32bis, V.32, V.22bis, V.22
Supports Auto Fallback, Caller ID and MNP 5, V.42bis data compression
with 115200 compatible Virtual UART
Requires 16 MB RAM and WIN 95/98/NT
-----------------------------

It's that last line of the description that make me think that this
might be a special creature that is unsupported by Linux.

Thanks,

David

Since it reads ... with 115200 compatible Virtual UART ...
it definitely seems some sort of software modem.

Sorry

Thanks for that.

I have downloaded the driver (pctel.zip). Can anyone help me (or point
me in the right direction) how to install it?

Thanks.

David

1. Linux and ISA/PCI motherboard with on-board I/O and UMC chipset??

I just bought a 486 motherboard (Award Legal BIOS, UMC chipset) that has
on-board I/O, which in part of the PCI bus.  The board says it includes a
driver for DOS/Windows which improves performance and allows up to 4 IDE
devices.  I'm wondering if there is such a driver for Linux, or if it will work
fine (though at reduced performance) without the driver.
