Hi there. I have an Agrere Systems PCI-SV92PP Soft Modem on COM3 and Puppy 4.3.1 iso on CD. I would like to try out this fix but I am extremely rusty at Unix (Comp. Sci. major 20 years ago). Could somebody give me the exact steps and commands needed? Sorry to be a pain. I promise to come back and tell you how it went.

So I poked around a little more, and found 3 links at Driverguide.com that discussed linux drivers for the SV92PP.

The 1st one claims to be a driver -- the download page claims:

I think that the 8.4MB zip file is too big to post here, but if someone can tell which of these subsets is most appropriate (e.g. closest match to Puppy), I would be happy to extract that one and post it here. My first thought is the RPM, but hopefully someone else can tell better.

(also, if the 8.4 MB can be posted, I'ld be happy to push it up).

Suggest you try on a pristine pup431 savefile....

for Agere SV92PP(11c10620 AGRSM)

download and install:

modem_fix_pack_to_431-6.pet from: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=27882

from page 1 of this topic:
pup_event_backend_modprobe_fix_to_p43x-5.7.pet
modem_fix_pack_delta-6_to_8.pet

from page 4 of this topic:
modem_fix_pack_8-patch-4.pet
agrsm-11c11040-2.1.80~20091225-k2.6.30.5.pet
agrsm06pci-2.1.80~20100106-k2.6.30.5.pet

I think that is correct - rerwin is the author and real expert and will no doubt confirm or contradict.

Cheers
Peter

peebee,
You are "right on". That is exactly what I would have advised, but you said it better. Thank you for handling the request.

Hi Richard

I have reported in Barry's blog that the wrong version of agrmodem.ko is being loaded for me in wary092....

/lib/modules/k2.6.34.6/agrmodem/active is apparently correctly linked to 11c11040 but it is the 048pci modules that are being loaded....casuing modem-stats to crash

Cheers
Peter

Ok, I have made burned a new CD and deleted the two files on hard drive then reinstalled and installed the .pet files. Now unfortunately I get the error message at the top of the dial-up window "Warning! No modem detected. You cannot dial out."

robotz,
Assuming the packages are installed as peebee instructed, when you boot up and see the "no modem" message, click on the "Internet by dialup..." icon in the connect wizard to start pupdial. In pupdial, click on "CHOOSE" and then on "ERASE" and "Okay", then EXIT pupdial and reboot.

Although this seems unnecessary (since there is no selected modem to "erase"), it will cause a script to run to select the appropriate driver for your modem. Then reboot again.

If you still get "no modem", the next step is for us to examine diagnostic data. At that point, please open a console (the monitor icon at the top of your desktop) and enter the command:

pmodemdiag

That will place a pmodemdiag...tar.gz file in your root directory. Please attach that to a post to this thread, or PM it to me if you prefer. Let's hope it just works, so you can skip the diag file.
Richard

Ok, I have done that then I burned another CD and tried the whole process over again from the start to make sure I hadn't made any mistakes. Still no luck so the diagnostic file is attached to this post.

I'd appreciate it if someone who knows modems would give an opinion of this dialog. What might I try changing next? (Signal strength is good, and the modem works in Windows.) I'm totally out of my depth with modems, so am desperate for any help.

The modem string is just whatever came up. Port detection is not consistent, so I set that in wvdial.conf. Do I need to run setserial before running wvdial? Was using Lucid for this.

# Prior to wvdial, I execute: ln /dev/ttyUSB1 /dev/modem
# unplug the modem twice, and
# cp wvdial.bak /etc/wvdial.conf

Code:

--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.53
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
ATZ
OK
--> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &d2 S11=55 +FCLASS=0
ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &d2 S11=55 +FCLASS=0
OK
--> Modem initialized.
--> Sending: ATX1DT*99***1#
--> Waiting for carrier.
ATX1DT*99***1#

Shep,
Because I spend my limited time trying to make puppy handle any modem issues thrown at it, I cannot debug individual "backlevel" problems. Please try Wary 0.9.4, which has the latest in modem developments. If you have problems with that, I will help you resolve them. If we find any bugs, my fixing them will benefit many. Thanks for posting your situation. Wary might take care of it.
Richard

Yes, my effort is going into getting Wary working nicely with dialup modems.

The most recent Wary is 0.9.4, and rerwin has posted some extra PETs on the Wary 0.9.4 feedback thread here:

See also my blog for progress reports:

Note, I will probably be uploading another Wary (095?) about the 8th of this month.

Here is a brief "howto" on connecting to the internet using Three (UK) wireless modem and Connect and PupDial.
BTW I'm using 4.3.1 frugal install

The hardware can be identified by opening a terminal:
Code:
 cat /proc/bus/usb/devices
...
T:  Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=02 Dev#=  3 Spd=12  MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=19d2 ProdID=0031 Rev= 0.00
S:  Manufacturer=ZTE,Incorporated
S:  Product=ZTE WCDMA Technologies MSM
S:  SerialNumber=P673A3H3GD010000

I downloaded and installed the five pets from the first page of this thread:Then did the following:
    1) Clicked on the Connect desktop icon
    2) On the following dialog clicked on the first button "Internet by dialup analog or wireless modem"
      NB my wireless modem port had already been detected (ttyUSB2)!
    3) On the following dialog clicked yes to probe modem
    4) On the following dialog clicked yes to probe for modem initialization string
    5) On the following dialog clicked ttyUSB2 (for good measure)
    6) This returned the same dialog to which I:
      a) Entered *99***1# for the phone number
      b) Checked stupid mode
      c) Clicked connect
Fanfare of trumpets, I now had a working internet connection!!

Many thanks to rerwin

HTH
