Modem and Dial-up connection problem!

Postby behzadsh on Wed Dec 10, 2008 2:55 pm

hi,
I'm using Elyssa. everything is right except some little problems.
I have installed in my laptop (Dell vostro 1400). I couldn't connect to internet by modem, Finnally I've found linuxant driver but it was not free and the trial version allow you to connect at 14.4 Kb/s :cry:
I have checked dell support for it's driver but it does not work! :cry:

If there is any way to improve my connection please tell me or there's another driver for my modem

thanks, Behzad

Which edition (main, kde...?)
Which modem?
Run lspci and lsusb (it may be connected by USB even if it's internal) and post here
