My 56kbps D-Link internal modem is not working under FC4. Under Windows it is working properly. Port is COM 3 (/dev/ttyS2), but it is not working. In fact out of frustration I tried all the available ports in the kppp setup.

The installation CD doesn't have drivers (it's plug and play under Windows).

By the way, Windows detect it as "SoftV92 Data Fax Modem".

Kindly help!!!

A "softmodem" is one in which none of the "smarts" are implemented in hardware; the modem can't do anything at all without an appropriate driver. The first thing you need to do is figure out what chipset you have: see

http://linmodems.org/

for a lot of useful information and some utility software that will help you figure this out.

Thanks for the kind reply. I have an external D-Link serial modem too, which was working perfectly under RedHat 8 and Windows. Under FC4 it is ALSO not working. Is that the fault of FC4.

External modems should work with every linux.
How do you use it?
Isn't it detected by kppp?

No, kppp is not detecting it (internal and external both), and I�m clue less.

Hm. I found an error in your initial post - perhaps a typo:

/dev/tty2 - that's a virtual terminal
/dev/ttyS2 - that's a com-port.
