View Full Version : [ubuntu] Help with ModemData.gz file

April 12th, 2009, 10:53 AM
Hi, I'm a newbie - I have Ubuntu booting and running from CD, but no luck connecting to internet. I think it's the internal modem is not responding to Linux. I have attached the file ModemData.gz as suggested in Linmodems help page.

anyone out there who can help please?

You have attached the program that does a scan of your modem to give you information about how to set it up and connect. To help, you need to see the output files from running this. Open a terminal and do:
gunzip scanModem.gz
chmod +x scanModem
./scanModem A text file will be created called ModemData.txt. Once you have read that file, you will have the information you need to proceed. Post back if you get stuck.
