PCMCIA modem not working

Post by f.. » Fri, 16 Jun 2000 04:00:00



Hi,

PCMCIA installed as it comes with SuSE-6.4, Xircom and 3com ethernet cards
work as well as Simple Techology 340MB datacard but this MultiTech Multi
Mobile 56K modem doesn't.

Here's a syslog snapshot:

Jun 15 15:18:16 tossu-II cardmgr[3815]: initializing socket 0
Jun 15 15:18:16 tossu-II cardmgr[3815]: socket 0: Serial or Modem
Jun 15 15:18:16 tossu-II cardmgr[3815]: executing: 'insmod /lib/modules/2.2.14/pcmcia/serial_cs.o'
Jun 15 15:18:17 tossu-II kernel: tty00 at 0x03f8 (irq = 10) is a 16550A
Jun 15 15:18:17 tossu-II cardmgr[3815]: executing: './serial start ttyS0'

bash-2.03# setserial /dev/modem, UART: 16550A, Port: 0x03f8, IRQ: 10

So it seems to initialize OK but that darn thing just doesn't respond to
anything... For example minicom just hangs when trying to exit before
pulling the card out.

Help?

MicroSoft? is that some kind of a toilet paper?
PS: Look for address here, not from headers. And remove NOSPAM's

1. pcmcia modem is not working

i plead ignorance.
please point me in the right direction.
i have a generic pc card modem on my laptop,
it works fine with w98 and linux,
but i cant figure out how to run it with freebsd
i suspect i need to add a pc card support module to the kernel,
but i'm not sure because i have never messed with this before
and fear change.
i installed 3.3 freebsd off cd, and have not done any customizing
to the kernel to date.
btw, i tried querying modem with kppp, it finds it ok,
but the output window is blank, whereas under linux it is
full of juicy tidbits re: modem setup.
thanks,
igor
