Re: connect script failed when trying to use pon



the system cannot talk to the modem, make sure the modem is configured
correctly, if this is the first time you installed linux on that
machine, you may need to use isapnp to configure it.  use minicom to
manually talk to the modem, i suggest using the jumpers (if available) on
the modem to hard code the modem to a specific IRQ and I/O address, also
make sure there are no conflicts with the modem settings any any other
devices (see /proc/ioports and /proc/interrupts.  i had a modem hardcoded
to IRQ3 recently in a system with 2 intel eepro 100 Network cards and one
of the cards was on IRQ3 as well preventing communication with the
modem.  also make sure the serial port setings are correct by running

setserial /dev/ttyS0

make sure the I/O port and IRQ are right, the rest is usually ok to leave
at the defaults for a modern modem.

make sure the modem is not  a winmodem either, its best to use either
external or even better an internal ISA modem.  diamond 56i modems seem to
work pretty good for me(ISA) they run about $35 i think. the older 56i's
had jumpers it seems the newer ones have none but still can be configued
through isapnp
