Hi, I have an IBM Aptiva M71 with an Mwave adapter card running
slackware Linux 3.0, and am having major problems getting Linux to
recognize the modem for use with outgoing PPP/SLIP connections to my
internet service provider. The modem appears not to be responding to
commands sent to it by dip, minicom, or echo statments, such as:
echo -e ATS0=0\&W\&W1DT5551234\r>/dev/cua0
I have checked, and there is no conflict between COM1 and COM2, and the
mouse. Do Mwave cards need to be initialized or handled differently?
Can anyone offer any help with this?
