My man9.0 did not recognize my modem when i used the wizard too get to the internet, it relayed a message that there was no modem, I have the modems cd for installment of its drivers, how do i install using this Linux man9.0?

First off, what kind of modem do you have?

If it is a Windows only software modem your chances of getting it working in Linux a about 50/50.

If it is a USR chipset modem you may be able to...

If it is a Conexant chipset, yes, most of them can be made to work.

PcTel, maybe....

Lucent, maybe...


So post back with what you've got.

Yes thank you MJC
It is a conexant, would not the man9.0 recognize when installed?

Here is a link for the Linux conexant drivers...

Since this is a proprietary binary package it is not included in the standard distro.

wow this will be a challenge, to try too install the drivers from the site, but I will do alittle more training on my Linux before I attempt it. Thank you for the site MJC

Actually it should be fairly easy if you are using a standard build of Man9...there should be a rpm for Man9,just find your kernel version to get the proper rpm and use the Mandrake Package Manager, as Root, and it should do everything slick as can be.

Also grab the modem ID utility...it is a nifty item and will help greatly to get the correct package.
