I have an AmbiCom CF 56K Modem for my Zaurus 5500. My problem is that the modem is recognized ok by the Zaurus, but when I try to connect, the connection dialog says the modem is "Initializing," but that's as far as it gets.
Any suggestions regarding how I can get past the Initializing and get the modem to dial will be appreciated.
I am working on a script to correct this kind of problem but it'll be a while before I want to make it available publicly.
Which ROM are you using? Do you have a console/terminal and/or process manager available? Check http://elsix.org/index.php
to find these.
Examine /tmp/qpe-ppd-log and the output of 'ps ax' to see what is going on.
Many times, just a 'cardctl reset 0' will do the trick.
Often there is a stale lock that requires killing a process. You need a console to do this. Other times there is a pppd process with status TN and a 'cardctl resume' will change it to SN and then you can kill it.
Interested in seeing what works for you. BTW, I have a Socket CF56k modem but I really think the issue is with some applications messing up the settings.
I find that Opera and NeIC both seem to interfere with later attempts to use the modem. Watch for a pattern and let me know if you find something different!
