Hi all. Anybody know how to get my Targus Pocket Modem working under OZ 3.5.3? It works fine in sharp based roms. The Z indicates that a 'Serial or Modem' card has been inserted, but I don't know which network setting to use, or what dialing software/package can access it? thks

Post 'cardctl ident' and 'cardctl status' after you insert the card, it may well be recognised but you just need to install a driver for it so also post the output of 'logread' after you insert the card,

Cool, it does look like it's being recognized

CODE
root@grond:~# cardctl ident
Socket 0:
 product info: "Targus", "CF PocketModem 56K", "021", "A"
 manfid: 0x0013, 0x0000
 function: 2 (serial)
Socket 1:
 no product info available
root@grond:~# cardctl status
Socket 0:
 3.3V 16-bit PC Card
 function 0: [ready]
Socket 1:
 no card

I haven't heard of logread yet. neat. These lines are what we're interested in, right?

CODE
Sep  3 19:23:55 grond daemon.info cardmgr[1068]: socket 0: Serial or Modem
Sep  3 19:23:56 grond user.info kernel: ttyS03 at port 0xf60003f8 (irq = 39) is a 16550A
Sep  3 19:23:56 grond daemon.info cardmgr[1068]: executing: './serial start ttyS3 2>&1'
Sep  3 19:23:56 grond daemon.info cardmgr[1068]: + Default modem setup
Sep  3 19:24:27 grond syslog.info -- MARK --

So then, do I need a separate driver? And what dialer programs if any, are available?

thanks lardman

It's a Targus PA560? I have one of them, and it works fine just out of the box.

To connect, you simply have to tap "add" in the "network" application, and choose "PPP". Then edit the new created connection with the details of your ISP and of the modem.

It's just that easy smile.gif

thanks
