Forum: PCMCIA Serial and Modem Issues
Re: Question 3CXM656 - What is exactly a WinModem ? (Christian Gennerat)
Date: 2000, Sep 26

The "global modem for windows" is a hint.  Also this card is listed in
the supported.cards list as a WinModem.  You can't use it with Linux.

WinModems implement most of the modem functionality in software that
runs on your CPU, instead of using a standard serial port interface
and hardware on the modem card.  You need dedicated drivers that know
how to talk to your particular WinModem.  There are no WinModem
drivers for Linux.  (well, that's not strictly true, Lucent has a
Linux WinModem driver for one of their PCI WinModem chipsets, but it
does you no good)
