    Well, you should give some info like what verion of linux (the linux kernel especially) you run, what is the exact problem etc. Most probably you have a soft modem, which requires a pecial driver to run. The driver ha to be compatible with your kernel ...

    Internal Modems are not really true modems, in the sense that they use software instruction set to work... whereas external modems have firmware installed onto the chipset itslelf...

    For everyone's record:

    Much more information or driver kits for particular chipsets can be obtained at:

    * http://www.heby.de/ltmodem Lucent/Agere modem resources Manufacturer names of Lucent or Xircom may be displayed by the query "lspci -vv". These may be supported. The Lucent AMR modems are definitely not supported.
    * http://developer.intel.com/design/modems/support/drivers.htm Intel HaM driver
    * http://www-124.ibm.com/acpmodem/ IBM's Mwave modem driver for Thinkpad 600E and newer laptops. This is new modem card format, neither ISA or PCI.
    * http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/pctel-linux/ Jan's PCTel Resources

    * http://walbran.org/sean/linux/stodolsk/linux111.zip Driver for ESS ISA Modems. Only for earlier 2.2 kernel versions.
    * For 3COM/US Robotics Inc. winmodems, drivers were NOT available as of May, 2001.

    The external GVC modem if connects via the serial port requires no configration. Only the dialer has to be configured use wvdial so fitest give the command wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf then edit the wvdial.conf file in /etc and add the phone no username password once done use wvdial to connect to the net. Configuring the internal modem is a pain and not worth the effort as the drivers i found do not give the full speed so work with the external modem.
