Getting a internal modem working

Postby scooter on Wed Apr 01, 2009 4:13 am

Hi there,

I tried to set a a dial up connection the other day and found that no modem selection appears in the network tool. I did some some research and found that a modem should indeed have appeared in the selection. I believe my modem is a HDAudio Soft Data Fax modem with SmartCP. Is it a real modem? It belongs to my Toshiba Satellite P100.

I hope someone can help me get this working.

Cheers,
Scooter

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The risk is that it is not a "real modem"
Tell us which Mint you have and run lspci in a terminal and post the result (to avoid misunderstanding - the first character is a minor L and you copy by marking with the mouse and then right click)

There is no modem mentioned here
Run lsusb (just a s with lspci) and post
I don't think an old style dial up modem is connected to USB but who knows
