Hi,
When I run vi /etc/sysconfig/hwconf it identifies my modem as "Conexant HSF 56K FSFi Modem". I searcheed for the linux compatible driver for my modem and installed it.
However, now when I try to activate the modem, I get error 8. I tried minicom too, but it was unable to initialize the modem.
What do I do?
Thanks

OK, I'm assuming you're using a kernel module and doing something like modprobe my_modem. Does the module load successfully (it should appear in lsmod).

I'm not entirely sure what you're doing to 'activate the modem' can you briefly run through what you type, or what program you start to do this?

Hi,
My internal modem is connected to
COM3, so I suppose that would mean /dev/ttyS2.
I made an internet connection using the wizard but when I try to
connect, I get an error 8 message and if i change the port to ttyS13,
I get an error 2 message. Minicom too can't initialize the modem. I
tried KPPP too, but it gives me an indefinite "Initializing modem..."
message.
When I open /etc/sysconfig/hwconf in text editor, I get my modem as
"Conexant HSF 56K HSFi Modem".

I tried logging in as root and typed wvdialconf create and got the
following message:-

[root@localhost ~]# wvdialconf create
Scanning your serial ports for a modem.

ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 2400 baud, next try: 9600 baud
ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 9600 baud, next try: 115200 baud
ttyS0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- and failed too at 115200, giving up.
Port Scan<*1>: S1 S2 S3 S4 S5 S6 S7

Sorry, no modem was detected! Is it in use by another program?
Did you configure it properly with setserial?

Please read the FAQ at http://open.nit.ca/wvdial/

If you still have problems, send mail to wvdial-list@lists.nit.ca.

Can somebody please help me?
