Question modem dead? 

Forum: PCMCIA Serial and Modem Issues
Date: 2000, Jan 03
From: Richard Sevenich rsevenic

I have a laptop whose modem has stopped working and I know not whether it is a software or hardware problem - being relatively unfamiliar with pcmcia.

Symptoms:

1. When card services start, the card is successfully identified.

2. cardctl status indicates on the 2nd line
	function 0: [ready], [bat low], [bat dead]
   (the latter two flags make me nervous)

3. At start, /dev/modem is created as a soft link to
   /dev/ttyS1, but I cannot examine /dev/modem with
   setserial - the attempt hangs the system

4. The card is a PCMCIA MAKER, 56K V.90 DataFax Modem

I would appreciate help/hints.

Regards, Richard
