Mess after Mess
My freind gave me a 3Com/USR modem, model 5610, it's an older modem from 1999, but it works. And I found out that it was compatible with Mandrake 9.1, the distro that I use. Stuck it in the computer, dials fine, everything is cool there, but linux needs a driver I suppose. It is possible that I have it set on the wrong COM port, i think i set it to COM2 on linux, and it shows up on windows as COM4, i'm assuming that they stay the same on both OS's, so lets just say I didn't guess right. If everything is fine, outside of the COM port, what do i need to do to dial up to my ISP? Terminal? something else I'm unaware of?
Distro: Mandrake 9.1
Boot: Dual Boot, Windows XP Home Build 2600, Mandrake 9.1
HardDrake from the Control Center shows the modem as Unknown/Other, Device Class is Communications.
