I can't seem to connect to internet using blag. I search for the modem and it can't find it. So i just use the default settings and i still can't connect. My modem isn't dialing at all. I think i need the drivers for it but i can't find them anywhere. It is a rockwell modem. Also how do i access my other drives on my comp?

What model of Rockwell modem are you using? It won't dial if you cannot detect it.

To access your drives, follow the instructions in this post -

and let us know if you have any trouble.

I think you mis-read that. He said "drivers" not "drives".

It sounds like you may have a "winmodem" instead of a regular modem. Most of these can be used with blag as well. Kazim has more experience with them than I do, kazim?

Basically, you'll have to insert the modules into the kernel. There's a section in the wiki on how to use a winmodem with a thinkpad--yours may be similar. See:

Hope this helps,

How about the output of either of these commands:
Code:
/sbin/lspci
/sbin/lspci -vvv
/usr/sbin/lshw


The lshw command will give fuller output when run as root. It should tell you more about what kind of modem you actually have.
