Details of my modem:-
Procedure followed by me to get modem working:-
- Name: Rockwell V.90/K56 PCI Modem
- Chipset: Conextant (Rockwell) R6793 HSF
- Model: FM-3711
- Manufactured by: Pine Technology
- Further details can be found at http://www.pineusa.com/modems/3711.htm
- Device ID: PCI\VEN_127A&DEV_2015&SUBSYS_2015127A
- Dialing location: Mumbai, India.
How I got Device ID :-
- Downloaded modem drivers HSF_V1.01.02_K2.2.14-5.0.tar from http://www.olitec.com .
- I had SuSE 6.3 installed ( Kernel 2.2.13-5). Downloaded kernel-2.2.14-5.0.i686.rpm which is binary package for kernel version 2.2.14-5.0 for which the modem drivers are compiled. Installed and booted the new kernel.
- Extracted modem drivers.Edited lin_hsf.inf to add in [Generic] section %HSFModem% = ModemX, PCI\VEN_127A&DEV_2015&SUBSYS_2015127A which is device ID of my modem. See below to know how I got device ID.
- Ran ./hsf_linstall.pl to process the .inf file.Ran ./ins_all to insert all the modules.
- Configured wvdial for dialing. I changed second init string to ATX1 as default string caused my system to hang.
I ran hwinfo /ui in my Windows 98. This utility lists all devices with their details. Then I searched for registry key of device Rockwell PCI Modem Enumerator. I dropped the unnessesary details so it looks like PCI\VEN_****&DEV_****&SUBSYS_*******A as in lin_hsf.inf provided in HSF_V1.01.02_K2.2.14-5.0.tar.
Some other things tried by me:-
Contact me:Ninad S. Thakoor
- I also was successful to use the modem under Mandrake 7.1 downgrading the kernel and using kppp. I am currently using this configuararion.
- I compiled kernel 2.2.14 and tried using that. It works by forcibly loading the modules.

Have you practice a litle love today? To your loved ones perhaps? Your parrents, your spouse, your children, your neighbours, or even your enemy? Here is a short tip on how to love them - Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. So these three remain ... faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of these is love.
