    Hi lolly325,

    We need more details, what type of modem are you using? Ubuntu has an applet that allows you to run Internet Modem Devices which is straight forward. Please give more details, Wine might make it look like its installed but not so please DETAILS

    lolly325,
    If you are talking about a CABLE Modem, or DSL Modem, you don't need to
    have Windows Software to install anything. Some companies (like Qwest)
    send a CD that installs on Windows and just puts your Username and Password
    in the Setup of the Modem.

    You can call your Provider and get your Username and Password and insert
    those in your Modem yourself. Most Modems have a Setup Page like
    192.168.0.1, or 192.168.1.1, or some other specific address. You can use
    Google to search for the proper address according to your Specific Modem.

    So, like others have posted we need more details.

    Re: Modem Network Help

    You should also tell us what version of Ubuntu you are using. If you are using 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot then you should use the Dash and search for Help and read the Ubuntu Desktop Guide.

    If you have a dial-up modem, then you need a program that will activate the modem when you want to connect to the Internet. Go to the Ubuntu Software Centre and search for GNOME PPP.

    As the others have said, in Linux you do not need Windows drivers. In most cases the drivers are built in already.

    Regards.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    ok, ok,
    It is a usb-stick modem.
    Inside the modem, there is an .EXE file

    Firstly, I've plug my modem, and I checked out my network applet, there is no modem connection ..
    and, I found from google, the problem from help.ubuntu.com, but, I don't understand much....

    Re: Modem Network Help

    lolly325,
    USB Stick Modem.....What is the Manufacture name & model Number? Is it for
    3G/4G or Dialup Connection (Phone Line)?

    OK, Open a Terminal Window (Console) and type the following Command:
    Code:
    lsusb
    Then plug in the USB Stick Modem, wait 30 seconds, and repeat the command by depressing the
    UP ARROW key on your keyboard. You should see a difference in the two listings. A line should
    be added displaying information on your USB Device.

    Please copy and paste that information to your posting or attach that information as a text file.

    As an example, I've ran the command and then plugged in my USB to Serial
    Adapter and I get:
    Code:
    larry@debian:~$ lsusb
    Bus 002 Device 004: ID 046d:c408 Logitech, Inc. Marble Mouse (4-button)
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 13d3:5130 IMC Networks 
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    larry@debian:~$ lsusb
    Bus 002 Device 007: ID 058f:9720 Alcor Micro Corp. USB-Serial Adapter
    Bus 002 Device 006: ID 046d:c408 Logitech, Inc. Marble Mouse (4-button)
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 13d3:5130 IMC Networks 
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    larry@debian:~$
    Now I can get more information by adding a couple of options to lsusb,
    by adding the VENDOR : PRODUCT information 058f:9720.

    Code:
    lsusb -v -d 058f:9720
    Post this information also.
