View Full Version : [ubuntu] Intel 536ep Modem working on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (hardy)

Hello, everyone.

I've found a recent Philippe Vouters' driver for intel 536ep modem on his website. I managed to compile and install the driver with a little change in the installation script. I have Ubuntu 8.04 LTS with 2.6.24 kernel, and I'd expect it to work on any similar configuration.

Simply download the attached archive, use a ROOT terminal and follow installation instructions.
Of course, you'll need the kernel headers installed and possibly some other development packages.

Good luck everyone!

Nice to find this recent post. I've a machine we recently upgraded to dapper, previously being breezy and had a working 536ep setup. Can't seem to get the modem working nor will the driver compile. I have the same modem working nicely under feisty in another machine, so am slightly stuck at the moment: Do I continue and upgrade this server to hardy simply to get the modem (for a fax server) to work?

My question is: Why are you using the 2.76 v driver and not the 4.71?
I'll try to attached the 4.71 driver I downloaded from Intels site with the possibility that you might like to try it. Can't quote the link, but it is on the Intel site if you prefer.

I don't know the differences, but will need to build another machine to test the scenario out with hardy if I can't figure another way.
Thanks again for your post, you've at least given me hope...

Just in case google or something has directed you to this page. You may want to check this thread instead.
It has a pre-complied .deb package and it is more convenient than my tweaked script.
Thank you.
