When you get the laptop back, please download the latest scanModem
from http://phep2.technion.ac.il/linmodems   and produce a new
ModemData.txt
Your Feb14 version is not displaying the Audio card driver information.
If an ALSA audio driver is not being used, with dynamic assignment
hw:0, then the modem assignment would be hw:0  and  there should be
used:
  slmodemd --alsa -c ITALY hw:0

i try use old ltmodem project (from close.u-net.com), but it don't work 
for me. may be it is my mistake, may be this code don't compatible with 
1648C chip.

Hi Marvin,
Thank you very much for the prompt reply.
However I did as you asked, and things still don't work properly.
The driver seemed to compile all right (report attached) and the module could 
be loaded, however on trying to use the module I got the following: (I am 
using kppp)  The modem would connect after a long time with NoEC and then do 
nothing.  i got the same result also when booting my SMP machine with the 
noapic kernel option.  Anything else I should be doing?

Re: lt_get_modem_interface

Peter,
ONE possible cause may be poor line quality
Just to make sure, drastically reduce the speed by adding
+MS=V34 preceeded by one space to the last modem initialization string
command such as in ATZ +MS-V34
(or add AT+MS=V34 if initialization strings are empty).
You reach this as follows: kppp->Setup->Modem->ModemCommands
If this helps you can optimize the loss in speed by reading
http://www.modemsite.com/56k/x2-linklimit.asp#Lucent FOR THE MARS MODEM.
Lucent only, Mars only. Ignore other brands and modems.

RE: CONNECT 50666 NoEC
The NoEC can sometimes be cured by switching from  a PNP/Windows to a

Re: scanmodem

Dear oxyg3n91,

Not asking you what you mean by "normal rpm" because I do not know any 
not normal rpm.

Please understand: there are scores of modems on the market, and the 
problem is to know what is IN the modem (namely the electronic component 
named CHIPSET).

Attached is my standard reply to you question.

Re: small correction in script error15

The file error15.log shows that everything works fine.
I see nothing which can be suspected.
But I have one question: have you noticed which network application(s) 
is(are) running when the hangup occurs?
Could it be correlated with UPLOADING files, specially large files?
Next, error 15 does not mean that your modem has ceased to work, but 
that the other side does not respond to your modem, this stops pppd
(invoked by wvdial , kppp, whatever) and the cause is usually elsewhere 
than in your modem.

About rebooting and restarting the modem, please explain. What do you 
mean by restarting your modem? modem, or connection? What did you try to 
do before deciding to reboot?

Are you familiar with the Linux   ps   and   kill   commands which can 
be used to stop almost any blocked task with no need to reboot?
Many people do not know that even if the keyboard, mouse, display, seem 
dead (happens as X11 failure) there usually is no need to reboot if you 
can login to your computer from an other computer!
Linux, not like other systems, is not boot-greedy.

See what my workhorse in my lab, where I do all my heavy scientific 
development and production jobs, and accessorily use as the 
linmodems.technion.ac.il server just said :
