View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to get the modem to work.....

Well I have come a long way. I burned a CD, installed it and the system really runs fast and I like what I see. I have even fiddled around with the desktop and tried out all the games and application packages. So far I really like it. I have my QMS printer working and even had no problem with my USB mouse and USB flash drives.

What I really can't get to work is the modem so I can use the internet.

I really need some guidance in this matter. I read the blurb in the help section regarding running some code after downloading a file from some site. I did that but am sort of lost as to what to do now.

Any help would be appreciated. John

Do you know what type of modem you have?

By type I hope you mean the following:

1. It is a small board that is plugged into the rear of the computer.

2. It is a 56k modem.

3. SMART Modular Technologies, Inc.

4. Looks to be plugged into a PCI slot.

Does this help?
