Description John F. Kohler 2005-06-25 20:03:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
When I try to configure a modem, the system does not detect the pcmcia 
usr 56k modem at the com port tty/S3 as was done with fc3. In fact, no
dialog box comes up showing a found modem at all.  The laptop, a Dell inspiron 4150 has a winmodem built in and my pcmcia card.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.6.11-1.1369_fc48i686

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on red hat and drag down to system settings->network
2.click on network wizard, and in dialog box, choose "new"
3.click on modem. (note no attempt to locate modem port tty/S3 as was done on fc3)
4. see dialog box for isp, phone number, and password
5 enter info and click done.
  

Actual Results:  When you click "activate" error message comes up ppp0 connection failed, errot 2

Expected Results:  A good modem connection should have been established, dialing, answer, and connection with id/password pair and ready for activation of browser

Additional info:

This was an issue for me on the same laptop under Red Hat Linux 9, but I do not know if the cause is the same.  I have returned to fc3 and the modem, software and connection work perfectly.

P.S. under fc4 I attempted to activate "minicom -s" and successfully dialed out with it.
Comment 1 John F. Kohler 2005-06-25 20:07:03 EDT
There is a built-in "winmodem" with this laptop, on which I have abandoned hope.
Before the 56k pcmcia modem I had a 28k modem which configured perfectly under
Red Hat 8 and 9 and early versions of fedora, except as noted above.
