Re: Dial Up with Mint 5.0

I've tried all the solutions listed here, except buying an external modem, and none have worked. If it helps I have a Dell Inspiron 530. If I have to buy an external modem I will, but I only want to do that as a last resort.

Re: Dial Up with Mint 5.0

Okay. Looks like I'm finally going to have to break down and buy an external serial modem. Once I buy this, how do I make Mint connect with it? Keep in mind I have 4.0 Lite. Thank you.

Re: Dial Up with Mint 5.0

Okay. I ran scan modem and it generated a ModemData.txt file among others. I don't understand what it means. It seems to me, that my internal modem is Linux compatible, but I don't really know. I tried emailing the address provided, and it was returned to me. I think there are some drivers I need to...

Re: Dial Up with Mint

Ok. I've installed Mint to my computer, and I'm dual booting with Vista. Both are functioning alright. When I click on the connection Icon at the bottom right hand in Mint, I click connect to modem or whatever it says, and nothing happens. I have setup the connection by clicking on the same icon. Wh...

Re: Dial Up with Mint 5.0

I went to this site https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto/SetUpDialer#head-f5120acdc3ef62fe7d37bfd3f0c9157ebe9c8ef6 and followed the instructions under the section that said For Ubuntu, without installing additional software, using NetworkAdmin. Is that what you're talking about? Again,...

Re: Dial Up with Mint 5.0

Thank you for your help. I got the settings for the modem configured under Mint 4.0, but how do I make it dial the connection? On Vista, I go to connect to, then click on my connection, and a box pops up and I click dial, and it dials. I know Linux isn't Windows. I was just using that as an example....

Monitor problem

Don't know where to put this, so I put it here. My monitor used to display the Live CD version of Mint 4.0 just fine after I adjusted it, but now it won't properly display Mint. I have what looks like a black bar at the right side of my screen. I also can't see the menu button, thus I can't access a...

Re: Dial Up with Mint 5.0

I'm very new at Linux. Could you tell me like you would a five year old, how to set up a modem to work on Linux? Also, my screen won't properly display Mint 4.0

Dial Up with Mint 5.0

I was wondering if Mint 5.0 can be easily configured to work with Dial Up? I bought a live CD of 4.0 and soon realized that I couldn't use it because it wasn't compatible with Dial Up. If Mint works with Dial Up now, I'll ditch Vista for it. Any help would be appreciated.

Dial Up Connection help

I need help connecting to the interent through a dial up connection. I have Linux Mint 4.0 Lite. I pretty much know how to set up a connection, but there appears to be no way to make it dial. How do you do this? I'm on Vista right now. I tried to dual boot, but I accidentally installed Mint over Vis...
