Help with Pragmatic D56RSN-A11N external serial modem

  1. hi,

    I've been trying to get my external serial modem working in both linux and windows. for some reason windows doesnt auto detect it when i boot or when i search for new modems. In linux, when i use PPPD, it says the modem does not respond. Can anyone offer me some help? Thanks

    Ok, i just booted in kbuntu again, and this time when i tried to connect with pppd, it just sat there with "initializing modem" for ever. The TR light on my modem does come on when ever i try to connect.

    For external modems in Windows, you need to install the correct modem drivers first. Then add the hardware. Make sure your COM ports are enabled in BIOS.
