Ubuntu Dial up Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I"m trying to figure out how to create the connection to my friends isp VIA dial-up He is using 7.04 Ubuntu and i can't get it to connect for the life of me. I went into Manuel configuration and put in the phone number as 3331600 and the prefix as the local area code which is 989. The user name and password are correct. Modem is set at /dev/modem, dial type is tones and Volume is loud.
and all three check boxes in options i have checked. I also have wired connection enabled and set as DHCP. Everything else i haven't touched. So what could be the problem

Chances are that his modem is a Winmodem, which means it is dependant on windows drivers for it to function. The problem is the drivers arnt released for linux, so you are SOL...I was stuck with that problem too. The only option he has is to get a fully hardware modem. unless can use Ethernet to connect to another computer, or go DSL
