Re: SpeedTouch USB modem and Fedora

hi,
 
I have Fedora core 1 running on my system (thank you alexander) and I have an Alcatel Speedtouch usb for my adsl connection.
 
I have read that this modem should be perfectly supported by Linux, but that does not seem to be the case here.
 
When I choose 'browse hardware' under KDE I see about 8 times 'Alcatel USB Speedtouch' under system devices.
 
When I run the internet connection wizard and I choose to make a new xDSL connection I can only select my LAN card.
 
I have heard that there are new drivers available, I have downloaded a zip file with 2 .eni files in it from Alcatel, but I do not have a clue what I am supposed to do with them and I have also downloaded an rpm from http://sourceforge.net/projects/speedtouch wich I have installed.
 
but I am not able to create an internet connection.
 
some help would be nice
 
Matt.
 
P.S.: in my old linux pc there was no Linux compatible modem so I have never configured a modem in Linux before, so go easy on me ;)
The network connections interface doesn't address the Alcatel modem. It [the modem] has some quirks that make this tricky. Some guys at sf have created a shell script config utility http://sourceforge.net/projects/speedtouchconf/ you might want to try this (I haven't, so can't comment).

I followed the howto included in the sf driver package. It really is a very good how-to and will explain everything you need to know. Do read it. I followed it and my modem works a treat. The how-to also has a mailing list link if you still run into difficulties.
