RE: PCMCIA modem for Linux

The first thing you will want to do is run lsmod to see if linux is
reconizing the PCMCIA controller.  I just installed Red Hat 7.1 on an IBM
laptop and relized that even if the installation program reconizes the
PCMCIA controller it will not install the drivers unless you manually select
to install them with the workstation or server install.  The laptop install
will automaticly put them in.  Once the drivers are in you need to configure
them in the /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia file (this file is installed even if the
PCMCIA drivers are not).
You could also try to take the card out and put it back in.  If the driver
is working properly you will here a beep when you insert the PCMCIA card
(this might be a easier way to test it if you are not familiar with the
lsmod command).
To answer you question I am pretty sure those cards are supported and would
guess that your problem is the PCMCIA controller drivers.
Hope this info helps you and good luck

Subject: PCMCIA modem for Linux


I am a Linux newbie. I just installed Red Hat Linux 7.0 in my Compaq LTE
5300 laptop with PCMCIA  EtherlinkIII  3C562 combo card and a Megahertz 56K
PC Card Modem. However, neither of the modem cards were recognized by GNOME
ppp conifigurator and I could not dial out. Does any one know either one of
the two modems are LINUX compatible or do I have to buy a new one? What
would be the best new modem to buy?
