Subject description: The Modem Is not found on Ubuntu either.
 

Hi everyone!

I am new to this and never having hooked up an external modem I assumed since the hookup on the modem was a 25 pin I should hook it to the 25 pin on the machine.
First question,was that a good assumption? Or should it be hooked to the 9 pin?

After that all I can say is I tried to detect it on Ubuntu with gnome-ppp and the dialer on the desktop in puppy and it does not see it.

The modem is a USRobotics 33.600 model 0701 and it also says 0839 external serial faxmodem that was flashed to 55.6 and the machine is a Athalon board running at 1.8mhz with 256k of ram.
I am running Ubuntu on the HDD and puppy on a persistent 2 gig flash stick. The combo option is slick! The machine would not boot off UBbuntu on a stick and it flies with puppy.! All I need know is a dialup connection and I can take the machine to its owner and hook the other old sportster to mine at home.

I know this is not a Ubuntu forum but I found it interesting that puppy looks so much better on my Dell LCD screen at home than Ubuntu, any idea why? You can hardly read the text in Ubuntu but is is fine on puppy.

Fist question...it should have come with a 9 pin serial connector to the PC...answers follow on from that...being an external real modem, it should work out of the box...

Try the cable first then let us know.

Thanks

I found a proper cable and puppy worked fine but Ubuntu still won't let me surf. Only puppy will connect. Impressive little program!
