Hi i have been reading quite a lot without being able to set this up
extra info, the laptop is ACER Aspire 4520.  
I seem to find lots of how-to that almost fit, but not quite.  Please
help Thank you!

 The PCI slot 00:07.0 of the modem card may be disabled early in 
 a bootup process,  but then enabled later. If modem drivers load 
 but the  modem is not responsive, read DOCs/Bootup.txt about possible fixes.

===== Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) diagnostics ===== 
The ALSA packages provide audio support and also drivers for some modems.
ALSA diagnostics are written during bootup to /proc/asound/ folders.

The modem cards detected by "aplay -l"  are: None

The /proc/asound/pcm file reports:
00-00: ALC268 Analog : ALC268 Analog : playback 1 : capture 1

about /proc/asound/cards:
 0 [NVidia         ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
                      HDA NVidia at 0xf4480000 irq 18

 PCI slot 00:07.0 has a High Definition Audio Card
 The drivers are in the kernel modules tree at:
 The modem codec file for the HDA card is: /proc/asound/card0/codec#1
Codec: LSI ID 1040
Address: 1
Function Id: 0x2
Vendor Id: 0x11c11040
Subsystem Id: 0x10250127
Revision Id: 0x100200
Modem Function Group: 0x1

 The audio card hosts a softmodem chip:  0x11c11040

The softmodem chip 11c11040 is hosted on the Subsytem of the High Definition Audio card,
and is supported by the AgereSystems/LSI driver pair agrmodem + agrserial, which is provided by 
the most current package agrsm-11c11040-version at 

If not a Conexant modem, the driver agrsm with its dependent drivers:

provide audio + modem support with the modem chip residing on the subsystem.
Any particular card can host any one of several soft modem chips.

Support type needed or chipset:	agrsm

The AgereSystems/LSI agrsm code supports compiling of a agrmodem + agrserial driver pair.
There are a few different chipsets which use this driver pair, but they use different code resources:
Chipsets			KV*	PackageNames (most current as of November 2009)
11c1:048c and 11c1:048f         2.6.29	agrsm048pci-2.1.60_20100108_i386.deb or agrsm048pci-2.1.60_20100108.tar.gz

* KV == latest kernel release with a reported success 
!! Latest update with major credit to  Nikolay Zhuravlev
   But see conflict issue: 
   For the 11c11040 chip with kernels 2.6.31 and later a change in a modules loading settingmay be necessary.
   Within the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf  (or equivalent for your Distro), change the phrase:
      options snd-hda-intel power_save=10
      options snd-hda-intel power_save=0
   or the agrsm drivers will not function. For Ubuntu related systems this can be done with:
   $ sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Report from  Bjorn Wielens:
Please note- trying to load the modules on a OpenSuSE 11.2 system gives
 an error about the module_version symbol. Using:
# modprobe --force agrmodem
# modprobe --force agrserial 
is necessary to load the drivers, and does not appear to cause ill effects.

All of the above packages are dkms competent.  This means that if your Linux distros dkms package
is previously installed, if provides for future updates matching forthcoming kernels.

 Completed candidate modem analyses.

 The base of the UDEV device file system is: /dev/.udev

 Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.4.3
             and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.4.3

 Minimal compiling resources appear complete:
   make utility - /usr/bin/make
   Compiler version 4.4
   linuc_headers base folder /lib/modules/2.6.32-32-generic/build

 However some compilations and executable functions may need additional files,
 in the FileNames.h (so called kernel "h"eaders) collection installed in  /usr/include/ .
 For martian_modem, additional required packages are needed. The also required headers of package libc6 are commonly installed by default. 
 Compiling hsfmodem drivers does require linux-libc-dev and libc6-dev packages, for kernels 2.6.24 and later versions.
 In not included on your install CD, search for them at
 or comparable Repository for other Linux distros.
 When compiling ALSA drivers, the utility "patch" will also be needed.

Compressed files at: /usr/src/alsa-driver.tar.bz2

If a driver compilation fails, with message including some lack of some FileName.h (stdio.h for example), then
Some additional kernel-header files need installation to /usr/include. The minimal additional packages are libc6-dev
and any of its dependents, under Ubuntu linux-libc-dev

If an alternate ethernet connection is available,
$  apt-get update
$  apt-get -s install linux-kernel-devel
will install needed packages.
For Debian/Ubuntu related distributions, run the following command to display the needed package list:

Otherwise packages have to be found through
Once downloaded and transferred into a Linux partition,
they can be installed alltogether with:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Checking pppd properties:
	-rwsr-xr-- 1 root dip 273312 2010-03-06 22:59 /usr/sbin/pppd

In case of an "error 17" "serial loopback" problem, see:

To enable dialout without Root permission do:
	$ su - root  (not for Ubuntu)
        sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd
or under Ubuntu related Linuxes
	sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd

Checking settings of:	/etc/ppp/options
asyncmap 0
lcp-echo-interval 30
lcp-echo-failure 4

In case of a message like:
   Warning: Could not modify /etc/ppp/pap-secrets: Permission denied

For guidance on FAX usage, get from  get faxing.tar.gz
It has samples for a modem using port /dev/ttySL0, which must be changed to match your modem's port.

Read Modem/DOCs/YourSystem.txt concerning other COMM channels: eth0 wlan0
Which can interfere with Browser naviagation.

 Don't worry about the following, it is for experts should trouble shooting be necessary.
