    External Modem Problems

    Hi, I'm hoping that someone can help me out here. I've got an external Motorola VoiceSurfer 56k modem. Connected to com1. When I disconnect the modem Fedora (FC3) identifies that hardware has been removed. When I attache it is recognised during hardware check. It is not showing in hardware configuration and is NOT seen by KPPP or Internet Setup Wizard.

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers & Happy New Year.

    Try running wvdial. Sometimes modems will be somewhere in /dev where kppp will not show when trying to configure. Run as root:

    wvdial /etc/wvdial.conf

    And see where it finds your modem. Then you can make a symlink from there to /dev/modem for kppp, or just continue using wvdial which, in my opinion, is better anyway.

    If you don't have wvdial installed, you can install it through the Fedora package manager.

    If wvdial can't find it, I'm not sure what would be the next step.
