Description Stan Klein 2006-07-10 15:26:04 UTC
Description of problem: I need to configure the modem part of a pcmcia multifunction ethernet/modem card for my laptop. FC5 appears to correctly identify most parameters but incorrectly identifies the modem part as an ethernet device, eth1. When I attempt to use the network configurator and set up the dialup, it shows the modem as an ethernet device and prevents my setting up the dialup. I tried some things. I added card "3Com 3c562/3c563 Ethernet/Modem" manfid 0x0101, 0x0562 bind "3c589_cs" to 0, "serial_cs" to 1 to /etc/pcmcia/config.opts as indicated in the material at pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net. The problem remained. I then looked at /etc/sysconfig/hwconf and found: - class: NETWORK bus: PCMCIA detached: 0 device: eth1 driver: serial_cs desc: "3Com Corporation 3C562D/3C563D EtherLink III LAN+Modem PC Card" vendorId: 0101 deviceId: 0562 function: 1 slot: 1 - - class: NETWORK bus: PCMCIA detached: 0 device: eth2 driver: 3c589_cs desc: "3Com Corporation 3C562D/3C563D EtherLink III LAN+Modem PC Card" network.hwaddr: 00:60:97:ee:c6:fb vendorId: 0101 deviceId: 0562 function: 0 slot: 1 The "device: eth1 is incorrect in the section with driver: serial_cs. I also noticed a similar problem in /etc/modprobe.conf with a statement aliasing the serial driver serial_cs to eth1. I tried placing a file in modprobe.d with a statement aliasing serial_cs to ppp0, but that didn't help. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): system-config-network-1.3.30-2.1 kudzu-126.96.36.199-1 How reproducible: Very, if you have one of the cards. I'm not sure, but I think it may sometimes switch the ethernet device numbers (eth1 and eth2) between the modem and ethernet sections. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Plug card into pcmcia slot 2. Attempt to configure modem function 3. Actual results: Can't configure dialup. Expected results: Ability to configure dialup. Additional info: My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 8100. I had been using ltmodem with the Lucent-Agere chip, but the issue of recompiling with every new kernel and problems with building the latest releases led me to try the combo modem card, which I had used previously with an older laptop.
