Success!!

I tried another batch of modems and found one,

PCI ID 127a:2005
Class 0780

that worked so it all comes down to hardware.

I haven't tried to dial up yet, just getting the driver to work has drained me, but I have one more card, PCI ID 127a:1025 Class 0780 to try so I will wait until tonight and see if I can connect to the internet.

Thanks again for the help.

Yep.. Hardware is in most cases the main cause of heartburn - it's usually an incorrect IRQ or even more - an incorrect 'driver' or 'drivers' - that are the bugbears ..

Good to see you have made some progress ..

As you have now found out - you actually need the 'correct' drivers for the particular model & type of modem BEFORE you can even get Puppy to recognise it - WHICH really means you have to do a "compile" of the Linuxant modem files against the kernel - '2.6.18.1' - WITH the modem installed (hardware wise) - otherwise you are only chasing the proverbial "tail" - as someone says (in their avatar) in these Puppy forums - 'unless you are not lead dog, the view is always the same' ..

Let us know if you have any further success or if you need further help ???

Hi
PCI ID 127a: 1025 class 0780

linuxant .com says :BEWARE: some PCI IDs, notably 127A:1025 and :2005 were used for both HCF and HSF modems, so you might have to try both drivers to find out which one works.

I downloaded both drivers but need help to install.
Please help.

bignono1,
Have I been waiting for you and your Conexant USB modem! I added support for it many months ago, but have had no one volunteer to test my implementation. The HSF Linuxant modem driver works in puppy 4.3 and can be added to 4.1.2 and 4.2.1, as can the HCF and DGC (USB) drivers. (I don't have either, so cannot test them. But the building process is similar to that for HSF.)

By design, if you have your modem plugged in at bootup, puppy should detect it and show ttyACM0 (I think) as the connected modem. If that doesn't happen, I will need your help to track down the reasons. Can you work with me to get you connected -- and fix puppy, if need be? Thanks for reporting your problem with the USB modem.
Richard

FrankA,
Good news and bad news. My testing has been on a PC with PCI cards. I have not attempted running from a USB drive, so now is the time for me to try that. It may take some time, but I will start on it, so I can replicate your situation. That would be better than using up your time.

Let's start on the modems-and-sound issue. You have a laptop that has the Conexant modem as part of its sound hardware and the Intel is what? A PC card? Have you checked Iwill's solution to getting sound working while the HSF modem drivers are loaded, if that is part of the problem: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=347220#347220
Which of the modems do you want to use? Puppy chooses alphabetically, so it should select the HSF and ignore the Intel537. Maybe there is a conflict that Puppy isn't addressing.

Could you post the output from PupScan's PCI interfaces listing and attach the /tmp/udevtrace.log file from a bootup pf the laptop? That would give an idea of what is happening. Thanks.
Richard

I hope you gus don't mind me jumping in here.

I have the conexant HSF modem. It is PCI not USB.

Puppy finds my modem immediately and will dial out no problem.

I confirmed this by dialing to another line.

But it will not connect with my ISP server. It will not detect the carrier.

I have not changed anything in the conf. or strings.

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance.
