Problem getting external 56k serial modem to work

Recommended Posts

Installed Kubuntu 6.06 but I can't get my U.S. Robotics external 56k serial modem to connect. Worked fine with Ubuntu 6.06 and Puppy Linux. Using kppp, would something else work better? Thanks.

Long time since I have done a modem setup, but can you be specific about what you tried so far?

 

Did you try to set up the modem by going to Start-->Settings-->Networking?

I'm having problems with the latest Kubuntu and a Motorola external serial 56K modem. KPPP from the menu can see the modem and will connect to the internet, but seems to be disconnected from the TCP/IP stack. No internet app will communicate.

 

From the network manager KPPP acts very differently. It doesn't see the modem at all.
