Amigo adsl usb modem
Hi, i'm using slackware 10.1 and i have a "Amigo" ca80u usb adsl conexant modem, the deal is that i found a tutorial that explains how to make the modem work under linux, but the problem is that this tutorial is a bit old, in fact i checked the webpage of the programers of the driver and it is no longer in use, but i cant understand hoy to install the new one, i'm a total newbie :$ and i could use a little help :D
This is the official webpage of the proyect and i'll appreciate very much if someone could help me out
Hi, fist yo have to know if you system recognices the modem.
Write in the console (as root): lsusb
Then, a list with the usb devices conected to your computer appears.
If your modem apears, this is a good step.
Now, you have to load the module usbnet (if not loaded) put lsmod and look for a module called usbnet.
Then open the file /etc/network/interfaces and add the following lines:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# Mi interfaz
iface eth0 inet dhcp
write the file
Then, write in a console: ifup eth0
If all goes well you should have your modem working
