    Actiontec USB external Modem

    I have an Actiontec USB External Modem, that doesn't want to work. When I goto Information->USB Devices My USB Mouse and the modem show up, but none of the location choices in Kppp (I'm running Mandrake 8.2 w/ KDE) actually work. Is there anyway to add more locations, and if there is, where would my modem be? (I get the idea it would be in the area of /dev/usb/modem(?) but I honestly don't know. I have heard of people getting this modem to work under Linux (and its not a winmodem) but I can't find out how

    Thanks in advance

    Re:Actiontec USB external Modem

    If it is a hardware modem it should work. If you know what usb device your modem is you might try creating the symlink, /dev/modem to point at it.

    Depending on what device your modem is something like:

    ln -s /dev/usb/modem0 /dev/modem

    You will have to change this to reflect what usb device your modem is.
