    modem drivers?


    my winmodem is not detected by SuSE 9.1 pesonal edition, so i need some drivers for it, right? problem is i cannot find any drivers for my modem that work with Kernel 2.6. drivers for 2.4 and 2.2 are easy to find, but Intel don't provide the ones i need. can anyone help me?
    my modem's chipset is Intel® V.92 Modem Chipset, the chip number is MD5628D-L-B.
    thanks for your help.

    try www.linmodems.org they have a range of linux drivers for modems which work under windows. My Lucent 56K Winmodem happily works under both Morphix and Mandrake 10.1.

    Before downloading drivers, check the make of the modem chipset. If in doubt, email your modem vendor for the specific chipset. In my experience, most of the modems I have worked with are using the Lucent chipset.
