Linuxant Driver for Inspiron 5100
- Hi Group,
I'm using Mandrake 9.1 on an Inspiron 5100, and am having a major
problem with the free Linuxant driver and my ICH (HSF) Modem. It is a
Conexant modem (8086:24C6), and should work fine.
But the problem is that when I'm using KPPP to dialup, the modem hangs
on the number 0 (zero). I can dial numbers like 566-2355, or
444-4444, or whatever, but when I try to dial my ISP (490-0490) it
hangs after the first 9 (nine).
I should mention that the modem works fine under Windows XP, and that
I'm using PULSE dialing (because I live in Ukraine and we don't have
tone dialing at all).
One obvious solution that occurs to me is to find an ISP that has a
phone number without zeros. But perhaps there's another fix of some
kind. Has anyone had this problem? The kind folks at Linuxant are
Linux is cool.
Ps. My kernel is 2.4.21, and I'm using BIOS version A21.
