I hope someone can help, as I'm running out of resources
to help myself.....
I cannot get my external modem to work under linux.
wvdial reports that it can locate my modem, but cannot
External USR Sportster 56K v90 Modem (x2 compatible)
Pentium P75 48 Mb Ram
How it is connected:
It is connected to COM 1, I think, the label on the back of
my machine to which it is connected to says something like
there is also another serial port labeled '010101-2'.
setting jumper switches 3,7,8 down.
3 -- Display result codes
7 -- Load factory defaults
8 -- Smart mode
I also tried the following Initialisation string: AT&F&H1&R2
(the above was advice from the 3com website on how to set up the
modem for unix-like machines).
When I do wvdial - it can locate the modem but cannot initialise it.
Another note, when I phoned the 3com helpline, they advised that
the modem will work on linux but I need to set the following:
Databits : 8
Parity : None
Stopbits : 1
Flow Control : Hardware
I've read all the info I have on these, but do not know how to
set them (I did a grep on my HOWTO directory for the docs).
Any advice will be gratefully received, I'm getting in a desparate
situation now .....
