SUSE 10.0 picks mine up, but I haven't tried to use it. I haven't had
much luck with it under Gentoo (honestly didn't have a lot of time to
try), so I bought a Duxbury PCMCIA card - normal hardware modem on a
genuine serial port - great!

Thanks, I'll give this a try and report back.

It works, but it seems very tempramental. Today I was at a client who's
running a DHCP server on SLES9, and my notebook wouldn't pick up an
address. At home I have a netgear WGT624, and it picks up DHCP quite
easily, but then again at work (IP-COP box) it doesn't. If I give it a
static IP it works quite well though.

Mine works too, it's just from time to time something seems to lock the
device, and skype's incoming sound just won't work reliably.

That's what it looks like, but why? It didn't happen on my old Compaq,
it doesn't happen on my desktop. So it must be a driver issue of sorts.

Thanks for your response
