[SOLVED] Get modem to work
Happy New Year!
I am having a problem with a modem that I'm trying to use with Ubuntu 10.04 I have been updating Ubuntu so everything is updated.
I'm using a USB Modem brand Zoom 56K series 1063. I know that it should work with Ubuntu as it was working with this Ubuntu when I had installed Ubuntu in Windows. I finally made a separate partition and reinstalled it. Now I am trying to get it to work again before my son installed it for me.
I installed Gnome PPP which is a dialup tool from what I understand. When I dial out I get a light on the OH side but not on the data side and then it disconnects me.
I went to system -> adminsration-> users and groups -> advance settings, and I checked use modem. When I click on connect it says connecting but it doesn't connect it goes back to the same window when I click connect. Went to setup -> detect.
Sorry for all the information but figured more you had the easier it would be to tell me what I'm doing wrong.
I'm a newbie so please make any instructions simple although I do know how to use the terminal.
Thank you all in advance for your help.
