Forum: PCMCIA Serial and Modem Issues

Normally, a serial device will either work or not; I haven't seen many
cases where a connection is established but then gets dropped like
this.  My first idea would be a PPP setup problem, but since the
built-in port works, that blows that idea.

A few things to try:

- you could try cutting down the modem speed just to see if that makes
  a difference.
- try playing with IO and interrupt resource settings: I'd exclude irq
  3 and port 0x2f8-0x2ff in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, so the card will
  be configured somewhere else.
- I might try doing "setserial /dev/ttyS1 uart 16550A", just because I
  haven't seen cards reported as having ST16650V2 uart's before.
