I've been trying to set up Mint 5 on a friend's old laptop (a Clevo 2800T). He only has dial-up internet access, and I've been unable to get the internal modem working. In Puppy Linux, the modem was detected as on /dev/ttyS0 and worked perfectly. I've put the modem icon on the toolbar, and tried the same settings as in Puppy, but the options for connecting and disconnecting on the modem icon menu remain greyed out. I also tried /dev/modem and that didn't work either. It looks like it should all be very simple, but I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Any suggestions appreciated!
