WORKING NEWS (20031123) :

Modem is finally usable, here is one way to use it on linux :

  • Compile and install module slamrmo (http://www.smlink.com ; slmdm-2.7.10)
  • Boot Windows :-( , no windows ? happy hacking
  • Add an ISP , Dial any number (unplugged or not)
  • Re-Boot to Linux
  • log as root # modprobe -v slamrmo
  • kppp (as root)

NOTE: Francesc had to include a heading space to phone number to get slmdm working. (versions 2.7.10, 2.9.4 AND 2.9.10)

More details: http://rzr.online.fr/docs/comp/modem.htm

ToDo is it Possible to get use it without booting Windows ?
