OpenSUSE Network :: Set Up Dial Up Modem Using Yast

Jun 28, 2010

I have a US Robotics serial modem, and I have smpppd enabled in system services, with wvdial and kppp installed. When I try to set the modem up using yast, I keep getting hung up by the different screens. First a screen that asks if I need to dial a number to get out. I have to dial 9, so I have that entered. Then a screen that asks for "country" and "provider."

When I try to enter anything, nothing shows in the boxes, so I go to a screen that asks for the phone number, provider, user name and password. When I enter those, it goes to a screen that wants "Connection Parameters", with default settings and the "buttons" at the bottom of the screen "muted," or flattened out, i.e. unusable. That makes it impossible for me to set the information as saved, so it's back to the beginning and sart over, with the same results over and over. How do I get the modem so it dials out?

OpenSUSE Network :: Set Up / Recognize Usb Dial-up Modem

Jun 12, 2010

I have an external usb dial up modem. lsusb shows: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 2001:f10d D-Link Corp. [hex] Accent Communications Modem How do I set this up? It probably needs a driver, how do I check it, or better yet, can I get yast to tell me if it recognizes the modem or needs firmware? I know linux and dial up is like the seventh circle of hell. Just wondering if there was a snowball's chances of getting this working. Sorry if this is the wrong section to ask in. Seemed like as good as any when I checked.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Get USR5637 Dial-up Modem Working?

Feb 17, 2011

It's been a while since I've logged into this forum, but I'm back to using openSUSE, and my experience with this OS has so far been quite pleasant. I have a U.S. Robotics Dial-up modem, model USR5637, that I've used with other linux OS's, such as Ubuntu, Fedora, and Puppy, but I haven't had any luck using this modem with openSUSE. This is a full hardware modem.

Usually, when using this modem on a new Ubuntu system, I got into the terminal, type "lsmod" and then "modprobe cdc_acm" and the modem begins to work. However, in openSUSE this is not the case. I'm using Gnome and KDE, with kppp, and I'm unable to connect to the internet. Is there a way of installing this modem that I am overlooking?

OpenSUSE Network :: How To Connect Via Dial Up

Aug 29, 2010

I have installed my modem via YaST. It has been detected. but it is a bit odd, when I see this message in Modem Configuration Overview window. Under Modem Device tab I have the followings: this one I believe should be my modem:

HTML Code:

82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) AC'97 Modem Controller

and this one is my ISP provider settings that I just created.

HTML Code:

modem0 Modem Easy-Dial up

My modem is a PCI modem and it has been detected just fine by SUSE 11.3 but I have this info also at the bottom.

HTML Code:

82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) AC'97 Modem Controller (not connected)

The device is not configured. Press Edit for configuration.and I have no idea about this one, since the modem is installed on the board, what does it mean it is not connected? My problem is after installing the modem i can not make a dial up connection via network manager, because there is no dial up option to choose from. which is also odd.

OpenSUSE Network :: Device YaST - Can't Identify YaST - "Unknown Network Device"

Dec 8, 2010

In my YaST Network Settings (11.3), I see an entry labelled "Unknown Network Device" how to remove the confusion? The Overview tab also correctly lists my three known network devices (listed below), as does the Hardware Information utility. This is the output of lspci, and as far as I can tell, is accurate and complete. So what has YaST seen that it can't identify?

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82845 845 [Brookdale] Chipset Host Bridge (rev 11)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82845 845 [Brookdale] Chipset AGP Bridge (rev 11)

OpenSUSE Network :: Kinternet - No Name Server Found W/ Dial-up?

Mar 17, 2009

I'm new to openSUSE and yesterday I managed to multi-boot successfully with version 11.1 for 64 bit processor (live cd).I have a MultiTech multimodem-usb (MT5634ZBA-USB)and have it running fine in two other LINUX distros using KPPP as well as wvdial. To try and get it working in SUSE, I went to YaST administrative tools for network devices (I think that was section, as I have to recall from memory or write it down since I can't connect from openSUSE, so bear with me) and chose modem and it detected the modem correctly as ttyACM0. My isp uses a dynamic address, and that is what is ticked in ISP information. Default Route is also ticked, though I'm unsure what that setting is for. I enter the phone number, the authorization name (ex. me@myispdotnet) and pretty much choose the default settings for the rest of the modem and provider set up. It shows kernel interface: modem 0. I let YaST finish configuring it, and I see kinternet icon and click on it and it dials up successfully, all lights on my modem are lit up, the icon plug is joined, and I can see it try to ping but fails (I can't surf in konqueror or firefox). When I look at kinternet log, it states name server failureno name server found in /etc/resolv.confI know how to use wvdial so I tried that alternative dial up tool and it also says name server not found.

I tried adding the SUSE nameservers in the network device set up GUI as it has a place to add two nameservers, but when I did that, the modem wouldn't dial out. When I logged back into openSUSE, there was no kinternet icon in the bottom toolbar, so I clicked on kinternet under applications, and it said:Error KinternetConnection to local and remote server refused. Maybe your smppd is not running or you are not a member of group dial out.I went to YaST>system services and smppd enabled yes. I also checked user settings and I am a member of group for dialout.That is the only group I am a member of as I didn't want to change anything there, not yet. I tried reconfiguring my modem again to see if I could get kinternet up and running, but it wouldn't show up in the bottom bar and the error above would show whenever I clicked on kinternet under applications.

The only how to I found was this, but I don't know how to edit a read-only file in openSUSE. I'm familair with kdesu and gksu, but not using vi to edit a read only I have been spending hours on this and getting no where. If kppp worked, I'd install it and use it, but I need a connection first to get it. But I guess if wvdial doesn't work, then kppp won't either until the nameserver issue is resolved.Should I edit the resolv.conf file and add the nameservers manually? Again, I'm not sure how to do this as root in openSUSE.

OpenSUSE Network :: Unable To Use GPRS Dial Up Connection

Aug 1, 2010

I want to configure a Gprs dial up connection through my Nokia N91 to surf internet in openSUSE. I am using openSUSE 11.2 installed as a guest OS in ORACLE VIRTUALBOX (virtual pc) in windows host. I connected my mobile to openSUSE using a data cable and the phone modem is detected. I configured Wvdial.conf file and used Wvdial to connect to the internet. After performing many changes I finally managed to get a successful connection, when still I cannot surf any webpage in the browser.

The only error that I get during wvdial connection is about Namespace (DNS) failed. I am using a AIRTEL (India) gprs internet connection.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Use USB Dial-up Modem?

Feb 19, 2010

I'm using an external Huawei CDMA fixed wireless terminal (phone + dial-up modem). It connects to my PC via a USB port. Actually my PC recognizes it (after driver installation) as "TIUMP Serial Port". I guess the driver is a kind of USB adapter for a serial port.

I can't get it to work in ubuntu 9.10. I ran wvdial (after installing dependencies and wvdial package) and it doesn't recognize my device as a modem. Is there any solution to this problem? Without solving it, I won't be able to go online from ubuntu.

We quickly found out that zoom has only made 32 bit drivers for linux. So...I need to find a usb modem that has drivers that will work with a 64 bit version of ubuntu 9.10.

Ubuntu :: Programs For 64-bit Dial-up Modem (wvdial)?

Mar 13, 2011

I have only a dial-up connection. I've been using the 32-bit version of WVDIAL and its associated programs in Karmic Koala for over a year. I recently finally got around to installing Maverick Meerkat on a different drive. The 64-bit version. I see that I need the 64-bit version of the modem software, and I haven't found it right away. Where can I get it? The programs required under 32-bit Karmic Koala:


All of these had .deb filename extensions. Also, largely because I only have a slow dial-up connection, I don't have any updates for either Karmic Koala or Maverick Meerkat installed. If you happen to know that I absolutely need some particular update(s)

Ubuntu Networking :: Dial Up Modem - Cannot Connect

Apr 20, 2011

I have been working for the last week trying to connect my serial hardware external modem (courier 56K v.everything) within an Ubuntu 10.4 environment. I live in the boonies where I am presently forced to use dial up, so this has got to work, else I cannot update Ubuntu or download software. After trying various suggestions, which my very limited Linux skills fail me, I opted for the suggestion that I download gnome-ppp, install and then use it. Seeing how I cannot download it through Synaptic Package Manager (which I was advised to but can't as it is my Linux computer that I am trying to connect).

I downloaded the zipped file (gnome-ppp_0.3.23_Oubuntu2.tar.gz ) to a USB stick, copied it to the home directory and then extracted it, wherein a new directory was created with many files in it. From here I have been unable to install it through the command line (not sure how), nor have I been able, as was suggested, to install it via the Synaptic Package Manager (can't get it to see the file, not sure how to). I need explicit (Newbie) instructions on how either to connect the modem without gnome-ppp, or instructions on how to get gnome-ppp installed.

OpenSUSE Network :: Configure A Connection With YAST As Well As With Network Manager?

Feb 1, 2010

Im new in this world of linux and suse. I have just installed the opensuse 11.2 in a Dell Inspiron 5160. Such laptop has a BCM4306 Wireless LAN controller. When I tried to configure a wlan connection, I found that the firmware was not installed. After looking in different forums, I installed the firmware b43. Now, my wlan card is abled to find the wireless of my router.

I have tried to configure a connection with YAST as well as with Network Manager, but both cases failled. Specifically, when I use Network manager, Im able to see in the applet my connection, how strong is the signal, but I see a yellow symbol (in one forum, such a box is shown with a green symbol).

I have check many time all about the secutity, encryption, and so one and all seems to be correct. But when I open the mozila firefox or the konqueror browser, no chance to surffer in internet. Now Im just a step to become crazy. The drivers are ok, the information about the router and the keys are ok, but in such a way, I am still harmloss.

General :: Best Ubuntu Version # For External Dial-up Modem?

May 12, 2010

After >15-yrs using MSWindows, I'm getting a new PC with Ubuntu as my OS. This is for typical home use--net access, web browsing+email, office suite apps.


I've read and bookmarked various info on configuring modem, including PPP and wvdial info. But one question: Is there a particular version # of Ubuntu best for external dial-up modem use? I have the CD for 9.10 Desktop edition. It seems that different Ubuntu versions include some things, others not. Another Q: Reading this page about wvdial, it refers only to serial modems. Does the info apply to USB modems, like the USRobotics 5637? [URL]

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.2 Install - When Exit YaST The Network Doest Show Up - No Icon In The System Tray And Doesn't Even Try To Connect

Jan 16, 2010

I am relatively new at Linux and am having some problems with an install of openSUSE 11.2. I installed 11.2 on my Thinkpad X31 dual boot with WinXP. It seems to work very well except the network. I looked up swerdna's instructions on setting network cards up. I used YaST to try and set the system up as described in swerdna's instructions. Everything looks fine my network card and wireless card show up in the overview settings screen and everything sets up fine. But when I exit YaST the network doest show up no icon in the system tray and it doesn't even try to connect.

I did go into hardware to see if it was identifying my hardware and my network card shows up as "Thinkpad R40" and the wireless shows up as Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b. As far as I know this is correct. I have tried three other distro's and this one has gotten the closest to working so far.

OpenSUSE Network :: Using Yast / Ifup Instead Of Network Manager?

May 27, 2010

How do you mannually set up a network using Yast/ifup? I'm trying to get my wireless running on a Broadcom 1390 WLAN. I've gone through the stickies in the wireless forum (this is my first stab at Linux) and have gotten the drivers installed and the internet working (albeit intermittently) using Knetwork manager. It seems that some folks that have had the same issue did not have problems setting the network up manually with Yast & ifup. I've disabled network manager in Yast, and I went through man ifup. It seems I need a "pre-configured interface," but I don't know how to make that happen.

Ubuntu Networking :: Control Dial Up Modem (start And Stop)?

Feb 22, 2010

After much work finding the bits and bobs to get my PCI controller based modem working in Ubuntu 9.10, I need a better way to start and stop it. Now it dials up when I reboot whether I want to be online or not. I can stop this, but it won't dial up again without a reboot.

I would love a way to push a button to get it to connect and disconnect, and blinking lights (like the green computer screens in WinXP) to tell me when I am communicating. Even better would be a way to set up multiple connections, again like in XP so I could use a variety of numbers and/or user names depending on where I am.

Ubuntu Servers :: Produce Dial Tone From Modem With Mgetty?

Oct 24, 2010

I'm trying to produce a dial-tone from my modem with Mgetty. I found this online: I recently discovered a feature that's part of the command set of some voice modems that enables it to produce tones. The latter is of interest to us since the US dial-tone and others are a combination of two frequencies (440Hz and 350Hz in the US). Below is an ordered list of AT commands that initialize the modem, produce a dialtone for 2.5 seconds and answers the call. To check if the "AT+VTS" command is supported, or to get the parameter value ranges supported by it, use "AT+VTS=?"
