NEWBIE: Need help with pci dialup modem!!!!
Hello Out There, I need help in finding, and installing a pci dialup modem with/into my edgy eft OS. I am using an older model Intel i386 PIII 933mzh (xeon/coppermine) configured by DELL to operate my OS. My modem is a Lucent Tech. MDM-V56P/AT; and, I have tried various supposed 3rd party downloads (burned via my other computer-XP) for this modem with no success. The OS would only allow me to open one of them, but would not allow me to load? The modem is listed in the computer but does not seem to be recognized by it (can't connect with gnomeppp). I did various hardware searches with various installed Linux based software with no success either (modem not available). I have tried various/all dev/modem... selections listed with no success either. Is there someone out there who could help me with this issue (I am currently stuck with aol. dialup in my rurral area; And, I have installed penggy and an aol. software/connector). I am not sure of the driver issues or the exact installation setup for this situation. I am a NEWBIE with Linux/edgy eft (spoiled simple to use XP user); So, please exlain to me in the basic terms if possible. Thanks Steve
