Most of the modem links I can find deal with Winmodems. I saw the new ZOOM
3075 PC card modems which has an onboard controller and DSP. Fearful about
all I had read about Winmodems, I bought it as the box said it was for
linux computers. Does this mean it is a hardware modem or a Linmodem? The
Mandrake 8.1 setup program (DrakeX) selected Lucent Microelectronics 56K
Winmodem and resists my attempts to try other drivers. My connect speeds
are slow. Zoomsupport has been cumbersome, relpies are not being
delivered, they point me to the Sunsite which seems very dated and targeted
mainly to command line dialers like Kermit. I could tell from the box it
is a lucent chipset but when Zoomsupport was asked Lucent Agere vs Lucent
Venus they told me Lucent.
Knowledge of the chipset was decribed as being needed at Linmodems.org
before you could solve your problem.
Thanks for any help
