OK. Serial stuff.

I've never had a PCI modem, only ISA internal and external modems.

Do PCI modems show up in dmesg with what ttyS? they've been assigned?

check dmesg and see what it says.

Do you have a manual for this modem to tell you what serial parameters
are default?

Install minicom so that you can try talking to the modem. Read the man
page.

You may need to intstall setserial so that you can set up the serial
port presented by the modem.

No, dmesg says nothing. Modem is going out of PC.

Don't give up.

What about
$ dmesg | grep -i tty

What serial ports show up; any more than are present on the box (other
than the modem)? The highest-numbered one will likely be the modem.

Dmesg shows

serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
serial8250: ttyS1 at I/O 0x2f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A
00:0c: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
body:/etc/vim#
On chip:

connexant
rs56-pci
r6793-12

In back of modem:

Looks to me like a "hard" modem. That's excellent.

This shows that you have two active serial ports. If you only have one
on the back of the box (or two with one turned off in the BIOS), then
one of these is the modem.

Given that the kernel first tells us its standard line about what serial
ports there are (it often lies or at least can't tell), then tells us
about 00:0c (looks like a PCI address) at ttyS0, its probably ttyS0.

Fire up minicom, and try /dev/ttyS0 and /dev/ttyS1 at various speeds
(start with 9600n81 [9800 b/s, no parity, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit]).
Minicom and the modem have to be set the same way in order for you to
communicate with it.

With each different setting, enter:

at

If its a modem, you should get:

OK

At this point, if all you want to do is use ppp to get to an ISP,
install pppconfig and use it to set things up.

Doug.
