Hi, I posted this in the 5500 section but got no replies so I thought I'd try my help here.
I got the the Kompany rom and I just bought a pretec 56k modem (CF). I cant get it to work. cardctl ident seems to pick it up fine.
I just need a few pointers.. where to look for errors, config files I need to sort out etc.

Many thanks!

I have a pretec modem. The cardctl ident output is
Socket 0:
product info: "PRETEC", "CompactModem 3.3V 56K", "021", "A"
manfid: 0x0013, 0x000
function: 2 (serial)

I am using an 5500 with the kompany rom.
I cant get it to dial. I use the ROM'sdefaul network tools.
Its not as if I am using a wrong number or anything.. since it never dials.

Any help would be appriciated (i.e. logs I could have a look into, and docs on how to set it up etc etc).

When I had the early sharp Roms, I could set up a network connection through USB and specify an IP address. The Z had an NDIS network driver which I could used to share an internet connection and thus get to the net through the cradle. But after the ROM update, no longer does it work. My Z is alone..
Is this meant to not work?

The reason I gave to my wife for buying the "Z" was so that I could use it to call into work when I am on call.. Problem though.. I havent bought a CF modem yet but, I think I am going to have the same problem I have with Linux. When I dial into work, I dont have a constant password as such, I have a secure ID card, whose number changes every few seconds. But all *unix programs I know, you have to put in your password, save the profile and THEN dial.. its not a case of putting in the password, just before you dial.. the pass is part of the dialup profile, you are not prompted for it. In windows, its not a problem, as it always asks. Any linux programs (specially for the Z) that can do this?
