Had a Smartlink modem (nightmare to setup, but worked good afterward) that died :trumpet: . Purchased a new Hiro modem with a Lucent chipset from Tiger Direct advertised as "Linux compatible". Of course that was a load of crap! After failing to get it to work research revealed that the particular chipset was unsupported :flowers: and no work around. Have checked the so-called Linmodem site but most of the information is old and almost all the links are broken, so no help :thumbsup: . Do any of the gurus here have a recommendation for a modem (internal or external) which Fedora 9 will recognize natively? Thanks for your help.

Hi vbevans, welcome to BC! :thumbsup:

Is this a dial-up modem we're talking about?

According to this website, the Zoom Telephonics Inc Zoom 56K USB Dialup External Modem Model 3095 is very good for 2.4 and 2.6 kernels (Fedora 9 uses 2.6.25, I think)

I also found this guide to setting up dial-up with Linux (I don't know how recent or accurate it is, though.)

The Linux Hardware Compatibility List is a good resource for researching hardware before purchasing it.

Morning Andrew, I'd like to thank you for the link to dial-up free ISP's. I recently moved to Seadrift,Tx. and must use dial up for a while. Alan

Thanks Andrew. Looks like I've got plenty of reading to wade through.
