any external *serial* modem should work, and although I have never
tried it, I think any USB modem should work also (with usb-serial
module loaded). Maybe someone else on this list could comment on the
USB modems. For external 56 kb serial modems (also called RS232), check
You may also be able to find some of the older external US Robotics or SupraFax modems
on e-bay for a few dollars. I still have a couple, but keep them for faxing.
If your moms computer still has an ISA slot, I think we have a few spare internal
modems laying around you could try. Pretty much any flavor of Linux can support
Any of these RS232 modems should work right out of the box. You may need to
tweak the init string a bit to get optimal performance.
Good luck, -b.
> I am a total newbie to Linux, running Ubuntu 7.1 (Gutsey Gibbons) on my PC and on my Mom's. I have DSL so I have had no issues at all so for connecting to the net. Mom, on the other hand has...because DSL isn't available where she lives and only dial up service is.
> I know I need a serial, NON WINMODEM but I can't find any. Do any of you have any suggestions/recommendations for this type of modem, where I can buy one and about how much they cost please? I don't want to have to switch her back to a Win O/S. I hope someone here will be able to help me with this. When I say I am a newbie, I mean a dumb as doornails novice without a clue whatsoever. Is there a serial linux dial up modem that will work right out of the box?
