USB Modems

Postby fadain » Sat May 31, 2003 8:03 am

Hello everyone,
Usb modems.......piece of cake...huh???....at least for window user.
But for linux users it isn't.......
Somedays ago i bought U.S. robotics 56k faxmodem USB V.92. :cry: how excited was i........... not until i tried it on Redhat.
Redhat don't seem to detect this modem. Everyone told me that USB modems are winmodems, they dont work. But some people actually managed to make there usb modems work(now dont tell me to ask them, i already did but they use different manufacturers).
Now you people are my last hope to make my beloved modem work on my favorite Redhat ( RH 9.0). Just tell me how to make it work, where can i find its driver etc.
And please please dont tell me to buy a serial modem... i had enough of it......and ofcourse, i love her.
Regards,
Fadain.

Check if linux has detected your USB port correctly. Try looking at /usr/lib/linux*/kernel/drivers/usb/usb-ohci.o. If you can't see anything like this there then most probably your Linux Kernel does not supports USB. You have to compile your kernel.

If your Linux detects and have USB module at the specified place then you muct have a Win-Modem. :(
