Have you created a dial-up network in the networks?
Hi thanks - yes, I tried to, but when asking it to dial, the system hangs and I have to reboot. The card is recognised as "serial or modem", but not by name. Is the modem faulty? They're usually pretty reliable, I thought.
"dmesg" on the console, directly after plugging in the modem, might bring up some info about what's wrong.
At least you will see there as which device the modem will be usable (usually /dev/ttyS0).
I don't remember Cacko too well, but I guess there's a setting somewhere where you can set the device name for the modem.
Didn't know that command, so that's progress! It gives (extra to what it gives without modem) A "division by zero in kernel" message and a load of "Function entered at ... from ... " messages.
I've looked in the System info at Devices, and it is recognised as:
Socket 0: serial or modem (yellow triangle exclamation mark)
"PRETEC", "CompactModem 3.3V 56K", "021", "A"
function: 2 (serial)
Vcc 0.0V Vpp1 0.0V Vpp2 0.0V
3.3V 16-bit PC Card (suspended)
I guess the "suspended" part is the problem!
Any more help very welcome and many thanks
