Ze500 modme

I have a Ze5000 laptop and I cannot use it in Redhat 9. I have been to linuxant.com and seen the drivers to download, but I don't know which one I have. Can you help me?

Re: Ze500 modme

The laptop was made by HP. It has a conexant modem that is called a winmodem. You probaly already know what they are, so I don't need to explain. There are 3 different drivers at linuxant for Red Hat and I don't know which to use. All the manual says it is a software-based modem; the device manager says it is a Conexant 56K ACLink Modem.

Re: Ze500 modme

I went through the same process recently installing Redhat 8, but mine was an HCF modem not the Winmodem. It is likely you can get it to work. First download the utility program from Conexant that will tell you exactly which modem you have:

Then you can look on their web site for the driver to match your h/w. I noticed they were mentioning new drivers for RH 9. Good luck!
