PCMCIA modem questions
Well it looks like I'm lucky ... I plugged my PC card modem into the laptop
heard a beep and low and behold it is recognized as a modem and is working ....
My PPP connection is real flacky. Sometimes it disconnects, every so often
(every 5 minutes or so). Last night it did not disconnect, but I could not see
the outside world. When I typed route, the route program would display the
headings, but would not display the info from proc and hang. (I check
/proc/net/route and did see what looked like the appropiate info).
I had set up the laptop for an ethernet connection to a private LAN, so my
thoughts are it is trying to use set-up info in /etc/init.d/ ...
BTW both my NIC card and modem are PC cards.
Any thoughts or comments ?
