USB DSL modem connection?
Well, I've tried and given up using Fedora, now trying Mandriva...
Here's my case: I have QWest DSL internet, for which they supply a modem/router box called a "gateway" (made by Actiontech). And of course, they do not support Linux! This gateway has one ethernet plug, one USB plug, and one wireless antenna. I have no antenna hardware.
I have two computers that I want online, and want the USB connection to work on the Mandriva 10.1 machine. But it absolutely fails to recognize the USB plug at all! I unplug the ethernet cord and run it downstairs and plug it in: it connects! Try it with the USB: nothing. It does detect that there's a TI (Texas Instruments) modem plugged into the USB port when I look at it in system->configuration->hardware->USBview.
Any ideas? I already tried the eciadsl driver rpm - nothing there worked.
