2006/10/06 Added Puppy 2 info
2005/11/05 Updated drivers

HSF Driver | HCF Driver | Download Page


Installation instructions

0] Determine if HCF/HSF
For puppy 1.0.7 or older users type grep -i 14f1 /proc/pci in a console and hit enter. In the output either you should see HCF or HSF in the output.

If you are running Puppy version 1.0.8 or newer (including version 2.xx), you can download the scanmodem.gz file, gunzip it and run the script to see which modem you have. This scanmodem program should also work versions of puppy.

1a] For Puppy 2.xx
See http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?p=69034#69034

1b] For Puppy 1.0.8 & 1.0.9
The version of lspci in these versions of puppy changed (I think) and the autodetection of the modem now proceeds correctly. However, if it fails to autodetect your modem you can determine the settings as follows:

For PCI Vendor ID, use 14f1
For PCI Device ID, type grep -i 14f1 /proc/pci in a console and use the four characters after the 14f1:

1c] For Puppy 1.0.7 & older
For PCI Vendor ID and PCI Device ID, use the information determined by the configuration script cnxtcfg.

2] Install the dotpup package and restart puppy.

3] In a console window run cnxtcfg and answer the presented questions accordingly. Use the sample output below as a guide.

Sample output

The bolded text are the values I entered. The text highlighted in green can be ignored completely.

jcoder, the HCFmodem driver works great! In fact I believe that the modem works better with this driver than it ever worked in windows. I can see no reason not to go ahead with the pupget for the HCF.

Thanks gliezl, I forgot the instructions.

I've updated the original post above with the installation instructions.

These packages should work with any version of puppy with a 2.4.29 kernel which include 1.0.4 and 1.0.5.

The drivers I've compiled are the last available *free* versions before linuxant took over. This is also the reason why they don't compile on the 2.6.x kernel (at least not yet).

They should connect and download at up to 56k (48k-52k). You can go to http://performance.toast.net/ and run the "shuttle+text" test and see what you get.

If you are are referring to /etc/ppp/options, that has the maximum speed of 115200 set as the default. You can leave it at that and reduce it to next lower speed if you get problems with the modem

No, but they are smart link modem (slmodem) pupget packages available. You can add them through the menu via "Setup" -> "Pupget package Manager".

jcoder24, whenever I reboot Puppy, I always go the the HCF modem setup to install again the drivers. Can this be made permanent? I already installed Puppy in the HD. Sad
