I have asked SuSE, but winmodems are not covered by the 'free' support. SuSE suggested that I would ask this list, but I already did that, and got no response, so I guess no one is familiar with this problem.
I have downloaded the package from Intel, but it is only supporting the 2.4 kernel. So I am stuck. Anyone any suggestions? Intel doesn't offer support for there modem chip sets, so I can't ask them for an updated driver.
