Hello to all!
My question involves proper configuration of the jumpers (if any) on a
Diamond Supra Express 56i (internal ISA) modem. I've looked at a couple of
the modem-compatibility sites, and while this modem is not specifically
listed, there are other similar Supras listed there. Hence I assume it
should work. I also ran a search & found a chat-board post from an
individual regarding his use of this same modem----he has not responded to
an email query, so no luck there.
The problem is this---there are 7 jumpers on the board (A0 - A6) but no
clear labeling of their function. The modem is PnP under Win9x, showing up
as COM3: IRQ5 address 3E8. However, all attempts to address it as ..S2 or
S02 under Linux fail.
Linux is correctly seeing the onboard COM1: COM2: ports, so I think the
Linux configuration is not at fault.
My question is: Does anyone have a listing or know the URL for a list of
these jumper assignments? I'd like to manually configure the modem--I
suspect it's not responding because there isn't a specific IRQ/address being
reported. The info I'm seeking doesn't appear to be on the CD with the
modem drivers, and I found diddly-squat on the Diamond site.
Oh, not that it should matter, but my system specs are:
Voodoo 3 PCI
-the afore-mentioned Supra Express 56i v.90sp ISA modem
Everything else is working great (except my HP 820cxi printer--need to
install the ppa-ps conversion). Any and all suggestions are welcome. If
there is something more obvious that I'm overlooking, please feel free to
respond/flame. It just kills me that I have to reboot to Win9x to
Many thanks in advance,
