Toshiba M105-S3004 Modem

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


my name is Daniel and I am a student in Germany.
I recently installed linux mint 11 on my laptop. At the moment I'm having trouble getting internet access with my laptop via cable. Wireless works, but I need to access the internet via cable in my dorm.

From this website I was able to use scanmodem and I have attached the modemdata file. Is it even possible that my problem is related to missing softmodem drivers? I have no extensive experience with linux and do not know how to compile drivers.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

===== 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: 
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 6: Si3054 Modem [Si3054 Modem]

The /proc/asound/pcm file reports:

 PCI slot 00:1b.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

 The audio card hosts a softmodem chip:  0x11c13026

The softmodem chip 0x11c13026 is in principle supported by the COMM support of slmodemd 
and the joint snd-hda-intel audio+modem driver, begun with ALSA version 1.0.13.  
For HDA cards with ALC883 chips, an upgrade to ALSA verions 1.0.15 way be necessary. 
Instructions for Upgrading snd-hda-intel and its dependent driver set are at:

11c13026 modems may alternatively be supported by the software from Vendor 11c1, 
LSI Inc (formerly Agere Systems) providing the driver pair agrmodem + agrserial, provided by 
the most current package agrsm-11c11040-version at 

If not a Conexant modem, the driver snd-hda-intel with its dependent drivers:

Any particular card can host any one of several soft modem chips.

Support type needed or chipset:	slmodemd supporting the snd-hda-intel audio+modem driver

 An ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) modem driver:  snd-hda-intel
 provides Low Level support enabling contact with the modem hardware.
 For all BUT Conexant chip soft modems (using hsfmodem software)
 complementary High Level support is through a Smartlink utility:  slmodemd

 Download from 
 the package SLMODEMD_gcc4.5_alsa1.0.23.tar.gz having a compiled slmodemd. Unpack under Linux with:
 	$ tar zxf SLMODEMD_gcc4.5_alsa1.0.23.tar.gz
 and read instructions therein. But briefly, the modem is setup with command:
 	 slmodemd -c YOUR_COUNTRY --alsa hw:0,6
 reporting dynamic creation of ports:
	/dev/ttySL0 --> /dev/pts/N   , with N some number

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
11c1:0620                       2.6.31  agrsm06pci-2.1.80_20100106_i386.deb or agrsm06pci-2.1.80~20100106.tar.gz !!

   All available at:   
Additionally there are;

General background                      agrsm_howto.txt 
* 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: 4.5.2
             and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.5.2

 linux-headers-2.6.38-8-generic resources needed for compiling are not manifestly ready!

 If compiling is necessary packages must be installed, providing:

For Debian and some related distributions, a package kernel-kbuild-2.6-38 may be needed to support driver compiling.

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

	-rwsr-xr-- 1 root dip 273272 2011-02-04 09:43 /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)
         chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd
or under Ubuntu related Linuxes
	 chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd

Checking settings of:	/etc/ppp/options

In case of a message like:

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: tun0 wlan0
