Re: DLink 56kbps External Modem problem

Most of the modems don't have any linux driver.
Try using the wvdial utility as
wvdialiconf /etc/wvdial.conf with your modem installed on one of the serial

I had the same problem and somehow linux couldn't work with two serial
ports. So, I got a PS/2 mouse and used only one serial port.

Hope that helps
