Description Need Real Name 2000-11-11 09:53:45 UTC
I have upgraded my RedHat Linux 6.2fr to 7.0.
My modem is internal, based on a Modio chipset, called MR2800. While 
trying to access it, I get a message explaining tha the modem is busy.
My computer is a Packard Bell "Club 2500c", including a SigmaTel card. In 
Windows, the modem is located on COM3:.

****** I do not know the component name *****

Sorry, I have forgotten to include that the Modio chipset is included in a 
Smartlink card.

Here is a message I have sent to the manufacturer, I think, but I did not get 
any answer...


I have got a Modio modem with my Packard Bell computer. The ID, for Windows 98, 
is MR2800, and the ATI commands return :
ATI1 MR2800 Data Fax Modem, SMARTLINK, Ver 2.60.00PB
ATI7 Country: FRANCE Serial Number 98638029 Protocol Factor 69e971b9

Note that it has been replaced a few days ago, due to an hardware failure.

First point: I would like to know, please, if there is an updated version of 
the driver for Windows 98, especially if it could manage voice & data, instead 
of only data in the standard PB driver.

Second point: My computer has a double boot, with Linux (RedHat 7.0). The modem 
is not recognised by this system. It is connected to Com3 under Windows, so I 
indicate /dev/ttyS2 under Linux, but I receive a message from the system 
explaining that the modem is busy. With a terminal session, I cannot 
communicate with the modem. Is there a special driver or do I have to do a 
special setup ?

Best regards,

	Jean-Dominique Delyon, Annecy, France.

Sorry again: The address was gary@smlink.com

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-11-13 19:29:13 UTC
Modems are not configured by the installer, reassigning to kudzu.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2000-11-13 19:44:18 UTC
We cannot help you at *all* with any questions about the Windows driver.

As for recognizing it under Linux, is it a PCI or ISA modem?

Comment 5 Need Real Name 2000-11-14 19:54:25 UTC
The information concerning Windows was only for information, not for reporting 
a problem. (between "***************" and "best regards")

When I look at the configuration, through the Windows utility, sorted by 
connection, the modem is directly connected the the PCI bus (like the AC97 
sound card, for instance). But NOT through a PCI to ISA bus.

Refer to bug report #20673 for the PCI configuration.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2000-11-15 16:42:51 UTC
Your modem appears to be a winmodem of some sort. It won't work under
Linux, sorry.
