First a few quick questions, does it have a flashable rom? If so, did
you try updating it? (I had alot of problems with an early 2919 which
went away after the update.) Is the modem set up to use the jumpers or
for PNP? IIRC there are two flavors of the 2919, one uses a Rockwell
chip and the other is Lucent. Do you know which it is? There should be a
sticker next to the phone line port with the serial number, if not
inspect the card itself for the number. Then follow the support links at
http://www.zoom.com to find the proper id. From memory i think it would
look like Znnnn-nnL or Znnnn-nnM (where n is any integer) for a Lucent
chip. Also on the support site are some downloadable files containing
the differences between the two chips.
I have recently set up one of the Lucent models under SuSE 6.4.
I set it (with jumpers) for ttyS2/com3 (i/o 3E8 I think), irq 5 and ran
setserial /dev/ttyS2 irq5 spd_vhi
I made sure /dev/modem points to the right place.
I had to hand edit /etc/wvdial.conf since for some reason the wvdial
configuration utility would not find the modem properly. I made no
changes to the default initialization string and had no problem dialing
or connecting with either wvdial or kppp.
I once came across a modem site that pointed out a lot of problems with
the flash in various modems, if I find the link I'll forward it to you.
That's all I can think of for now.
