Re: Modem configuration on Ti PowerBook G4

Don't reply to unrelated messages and change the subject to something

If it's a first-gen TiBook (400 or 500 MHz processor): should work; at
worst, you need to add a pause to make the modem wake up. But I think
that was accounted for in wvdial...

If it's a second- or third-gen TiBook (all other speeds): you're out of
luck, it's a USB softmodem (aka winmodem, although there's no Windows
involved here..).

Why do you conclude it finds the modem? Any positive feedback from
