Even I had that problem. Drew gave me the url : www.linmodems.org.

I tried out there and downloaded the modem driver.
But Drew when installed the driver it said that you can now use the modem as /dev/hsf0 or assigned id as /dev/modem but when ever i go for the connection i dont get the connection either i can say there it doesnt dials only. Can u please help me that what is to be done in this case. my modem is an internal pci modem with Rockwell connexant chipset with controllers

Regards,

Ramjeet

oh oh ramjeet.. don't make me pull out my conexant modem! heh j/k I'll drop it in within the next few days and load the driver and see if I can help you out.. to wrightaj.. Ramjeet has pointed you in the right direction.. just happens I was poking around linmodems.org tonight and they have developed a modem detection tool.. which will identify the chipset you're using.. which sounds to me like some HSP style modem.. of which there are many brands and associated lin drivers :)

I haven't found the "H+M modem" spec sheet or anything.. would it be possible to see what chipset is on the modem? This might help you find some compatible drivers for it to work with Linux..

It might also help if you can provide the output from
at a command prompt:

"cat /proc/pci" omit the quotes
