I would expect a PCI card to have a different I/O port and irq. These are the values common to motherboard serial ports.My modem is recognized. It is a different card than before. $dmesg | grep -i tty console [tty0] enabled serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A serial8250: ttyS1 at I/O 0x2f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A 00:05: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
This looks more like a permission problem with the serial ports. One of the changes that was made is that the owner of the console no longer owns all the serial ports. You may have to run the scan as root. I don't normally recommend running as root though.then : $wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf Editing `/etc/wvdial.conf'. Scanning your serial ports for a modem. ttyS0<Info>: Device or resource busy Modem Port Scan<*1>: S0 ttyS1<Info>: Device or resource busy Modem Port Scan<*1>: S1 ttyS2<Info>: Device or resource busy Modem Port Scan<*1>: S2 ttyS3<Info>: Device or resource busy Modem Port Scan<*1>: S3 Sorry, no modem was detected! Is it in use by another program? Did you configure it properly with setserial?
You may want to take a look at http://www.linmodems.org/ to see if any of your modem cards are supported.This is where i got stuck before. I am not using setserial properly. I can execute the command but i am assigning the wrong values i think but my syntax is ok or I would get an error from bash. One thing,at least, is clear, i do not understand the setserial command or what to set the values to.
