Re: pbg4 modem wakup
I used that modem for about 4 weeks before getting broadband. It does work,
but if my memory serves me, it's incredibly flakey. I can't really remember
what my problem was, but I do know that I had to hang up and redial over and
over before the modem would respond.
Also, check your kernel configuration. The 1st run TiG4 does have a hardware
modem. Perhaps Mac serial support is required? I don't think setserial is
needed, but if it is, it certainly doesn't take standard x86 values. My modem
is on IRQ 53.
Hope this helps,
P.S.: I you get definite answers, send me an email so I'll know too :P
