Question ADVICE: Configuring my PCMCIA GSM Modem 

Forum: PCMCIA Serial and Modem Issues

Hi,

As a Linux newbie, I'm trying to configure an unsupported PCMCIA GSM Modem card using RedHat 6.1-Linux 2.2.12-20 and pcmcia-cs-3.1.17 on a Compaq Armada 1750.

But... I seem to be having a minor problem. When I modify the "test_modem" script to ATD<Phone Number> instead of ATI3, I get the following output:

"Checking modem at /dev/ttyS1:
  Settings: /dev/ttyS1, UART: 16550A, Port: 0x02f8, IRQ: 3
  Modem query timed out: trying polled mode.
  The modem is not working in polled mode."

I've tried all sort of things including setting the irq to 0 but no avail - what am I doing wrong????

I've included a listing of some useful outputs of my current configuration.

Any advice would be really welcome.

Cheers,

Frank
