    Modem problems


    im running redhat 9.0. iv got two 56k modems, one external(serial) and one internal(pci). when i first put them in, redhat finds them on startup and configures them. if i look in the the hardware profiles, redhat recognises them as being there. but when i goto the internet-config-wizard, redhat says i dont have any modems installed. any help?

    try to configure them from the first screen. Also check the site of the company that makes your modems for linux drivers, installing those is likely to help.

    check if the modules are loaded in the kernel with lsmod command...
    what program do you use to connect to the internet?i would suggest you kppp ,which has the opportunity to configure your modem though!
