    Internal Modem Not Working

    That's probably because it's a Winmodem. They aren't even designed to work in Windows. If you're lucky, there may be a driver for it on http://www.linmodems.org/.

    Hi,

    if you want free drivers,
    look at the output of lspci see if it is hcf or hsf, then grab one.
