Re: Joe USA Kernel 2.6.32-29-generic Martian Driver

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Antonio,thank you for your response.

Yes, the martian-modem-source was obtained and apparently installed by the Ubuntu Software Center.

I did not compile the code. How to compile was one of my questions if it was necessary.

I will try to setup and configure the wvdial and post the results. I may take a couple of days due to other priorities.

        Again, thank you.

Joe,

Two questions:

1)  You installed martian-modem-src deb package?
or
2)  You compiled martian-full-20080625.tar.gz
package?

In either of the two cases, the modem driver appears to be installed,
the question becomes have you run

$ sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf
and if it did find a modem port which should have been /dev/ttySM0
unless it was changed through init scripts, then you need to edit
/etc/wvdial.conf with sudo priviledges and add a line "Carrier Check =
no" to the file and save it.  If you have done this, and have also
added your username and password to the file and have tried to connect
$ sudo wvdial

and have not been able to connect or the driver is not responding?

please do as scanModem advices to send us output of
$ dmesg

:

 Send dmesg.txt along with ModemData.txt to discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
 if help is needed.
