When I run pppconfig, I answer all the questions, and my modem is not detected. This has happened on two machines that have modems that do work with 0.5.3.1. On the box that I am on now, it works in kppp with Redhat 9. But, I have had no success getting the modem set up in 0.6 on this box.
I am able, however, to copy the wvdial files to a floppy, and install them in
a running 0.6, and setup my filetool.lst to put 'em in the tarball for next time.
I would think that with the winmodem problem, it would be to our advantage to have as many modems detected as possible. I paid over
$70.00 for one of the modems, and on a laptop, $230.00 for the other, a pcmcia.
I hear that Quest is offering "naked broadband" a Digital Subscriber Line without a land-line phone. This trend might well spread throughout the industry.
I don't know, but I read a post here (somewhere) that Damnsmall would detect a broadband connection without much, if any, setup.
This is the coming thing, but lots of us still use dial-up, especially on older
boxes or home-builts (mine) that are hard to fit with the new broadband equipment.
