Hi!

The modem is not found with the way you give me. The modem is an internal modem.

If I execute lspci -tv, the output is:

-[00]-+-00.0 VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8363/8365 [KT133/KM133]
+-01.0-[01]----00.0 nVidia Corporation NV15 (Geforce2 GTS)
+-07.0 VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 [Apollo Super South]
+-07.1 VIA Technologies, Inc. Bus Master IDE
+-07.2 VIA Technologies, Inc. UHCI USB
+-07.4 VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 [Apollo Super ACPI]
+-0a.0 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX [Fast Etherlink]
+-0b.0 US Robotics/3Com 56K FaxModem Model 5610
+-0d.0 Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1
\-0d.1 Creative Labs SB Live!

With this output I think the modem is at least seen at startup. If now I type lspci -vv to be sure of the IRQ I obtain:

The ..... is because I removed some lines.

I still removed some part of the ouput. But look at the lines with ***** at the end and the following few lines. The modem seem to be detected but it seems to have a problem with a certain table? What this mean? Can somebody understand that and can give me help. I read a bit and I try to do the following:
setserial /dev/ttyS3 irq 9
to assing a dev at the irq 9 which I think is the one of the modem but I'm really not sure if this works and I don't have any simple terminal program to test if the modem answer now. With the modem I just need to send faxex and it more and more important for me. I don't have a ISP with it so I can't configure one account like that to test it.

I provided, I think, all necessary infos.
Please, if you know a solution, help me
Thanks a lot
Martin

Hi Martin-Richard,

I just recently installed a US Robotics modem to a 7.3 box, I have no
idea what happens behind the scene, since I did nothing but:
- YaST2
- Network/Basic
- Modem Configuration
Your modem should be connected to both box and phone plug and 230V AC~
power (or whatever the voltage is in your place) and switched on (in
short, operational ...). The rest should work automatically, YaST2
should find it itself. Give some feedback to the list if it doesn't:-)
Then, of course, you also need to set up your ISP phone number, your
account data and so on, but that's all under -YaST2 -Network/Basic as
well.

Concerning the fax issue, I ain't familiar with that, but there are some
possibilities to do this AFAIK

Cheers ... Wolfi
