Question error parsing CIS (Hamlet modem) 

Forum: PCMCIA Serial and Modem Issues
Date: 2000, May 18
From: Aram Gurekian aram

Hi all...
I'm a newbie in linux and hardware, so please be patient if my questions are silly! :)
I have an Hamlet FM560 56K - V.90 PCMCIA FAX MODEM.
It works fine on my windoz98 partition, but I can't make it work with linux! :(
I'm pretty sure that it isn't a winmodem (at least, I can't read 'winmodem' in any part of the documentation! :) )
I'd like to get rid of this 1GB vfat partition, but I can't until I can connect to the internet without windows!
I spent a few hours reading documentation under /usr/doc, but now I think that at this point I need some help...

I have also a PCMCIA Ethernet Card from Hamlet and it works fine with both windows and linux in the other pcmcia slot.

I still can't understand if my card is supported or not. I wouldn't be able (at the moment) to write a new driver, so I'm probably going to buy a supported modem (even an external one)... it would probably have been more convenient to do that from the beginning, but I wanted to try... in fact I learnt some interesting things, but now I'm done! :P

... I guess every answer is in the "Error parsing CIS on socket 1: Invalid argument

I tried to report as many information about my system (maybe too many?) as I could.

Any help or explanation would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance!

Ciao
