I figure that there ought to be a terminal command to find ISDN equipment on computers. Does anyone have any idea just what it is? Thanks!!...

    How can I determine if any ISDN equipment is on my computer?

    Mike I gave up on using ubuntu 12.04 and installed suse 12.2. In suse 12.2 yast there are two red phone icons. One is for the dial-up modem and the other is for ISDN.
    I think that I have to configure both of them before my external serial modem will work. I ran lspci -vv but nothing there matches any company or product in the
    ISDN set up list. lshw does not turn up anything..

    ps I've already forecast Texas into the nest superbowl!!

    Is it USB?
    If yes then try
    Code:
    lsusb
    I don't think you need the ISDN CousinLucky.....you just need the PPP/wvdial software to detect your modem.

    Mike, my serial modem was detected by the suse 12.2 modem configuring tool and I filled everything in. I am trying to find out how to make it dial out to connect to the internet.

    I got no experience with dial-up...
    But maybe gnome-ppp could help?

    regarding dialup

    CousinLucky, are DSL and cable internet connections still not a viable option for you?

    You would be amazed at the difference in browsing pleasure you'd have if there is some way you can swing it. In fact, I personally find them to be easier to setup, configure, and use, than are dialup connections, too.

    Either way, good luck with your connection to the world-wide-web.

    Oz, both cable and Verizon DSL here upon Staten Island are much too expensive for an old guy collecting S.S.
    Distros like AntiX and Puppy have simple easy to configure dial up procedures.
    Ubuntu 12.04 does not provide dial up options until after you get on line and do an update and you
    can only use one phone number and the only way to make the modem work is through the terminal.
    " New and Improved " distos are just a massive headache for dial up users.

    Suse 12.2 Gnome's modem's configuration is simple enough; but there isn't any apparent way to turn it on and off.
