Thread: How do I know if I have a winmodem?

  1. #1

    How do I know if I have a winmodem?

    I followed this site to tell if I have a winmodem.

    http://winmodem.nhvt.net/identify.htm

    Is this the definitive way to tell? According to its technique, I do not have a winmodem. But I'm not completely convinced because I'm having trouble with my modem under linux.

    The reason I have doubts about my modem is that I was following a guide that said to do the following.

    /usr/sbin/pppd

    It said normally this would produce ten lines of garbage.

    I tried this on my linux laptop and it worked, but on this desktop it did not work.

    My modem is a Conexant V.90/56K Telephony Modem.

    Was that site correct or is there another way I can tell if I have a winmodem?

    Never mind, I have a winmodem.

    That site I mentioned in my first post was wrong.

    You should go here:

    http://www.idir.net/~gromitkc/20020204a.html

    and it will tell you if you have a winmodem or not. I should have known that it was a winmodem when I coudln't get my modem working in dos. :'(
