Sad CIS parse errors on Lucent modem 

Forum: PCMCIA Serial and Modem Issues
Date: 2000, Mar 02
From: Mark Neil holman

I have been trying to get an unbranded modem running on a Dell Latitude CPiA running Redhat 6.1 but without success.

OK so it doesn't say WinModem on the box but the logged messages (see below) point to it being so. However there is also a complaint from the drivers "parse error: Invalid argument" when reading the CIS. dump_cis gives similar errors.

I have tried upgrading from the standard 3.0.14 to 3.1.11 (in view of a brief mention of "Lucent Win Modems" in the CHANGES file) but the behaviour is the same. I have also messed with the /etc/pcmcia/config file in order to at least get it to try the serial module.

Does anyone have any idea as to what is going on, or whether I should cut my losses in view of the Winmodem bit

thanks

ps there is also an ethernet card mentioned which works fine - the modem behaviour is the same whether or not the ethernet is inserted.
