Hi, I tried to send an email to the scanmodem site but it bounced. Can anyone tell me what modem I have from the data below. Thanks

So in a day, also check the Archived responses at
-------------------------- System information ----------------------------
Linux version 2.6.27-7-generic (buildd@rothera) (gcc version 4.3.2 (Ubuntu 4.3.2-1ubuntu10) ) #1 SMP Fri Oct 24 06:42:44 UTC 2008
scanModem update of: 2009_02_04

There are no blacklisted modem drivers in /etc/modprobe* files
Potentially useful modem drivers now loaded are:

Attached USB devices are:
ID 1221:3234
ID 0bda:0158 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. Mass Stroage Device
If a cellphone is not detected, see

If a USB modem or cellphone is attached and was not detected, please
provide available information in your request to">

For candidate card in slot 00:1b.0, firmware information and bootup diagnostics are:
PCI slot PCI ID SubsystemID Name

The PCI slot 00:1b.0 of the modem card may be disabled early in
a bootup process, but then enabled later. If modem drivers load
but the modem is not responsive, read DOCs/Bootup.txt about possible fixes.
Send dmesg.txt along with ModemData.txt to">
if help is needed.

===== Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) diagnostics =====
The ALSA packages provide audio support and also drivers for some modems.
ALSA diagnostics are written during bootup to /proc/asound/ folders.

The ALSA verion is 1.0.17
The modem cards detected by "aplay -l" are: None

The /proc/asound/pcm file reports:
00-04: ALC268 Analog : ALC268 Analog : capture 1
00-00: ALC268 Analog : ALC268 Analog : playback 1 : capture 1

about /proc/asound/cards:
0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
HDA Intel at 0x56400000 irq 22

PCI slot 00:1b.0 has a High Definition Audio Card
The drivers are in the kernel modules tree at:
The modem codec file for the HDA card is: /proc/asound/card0/codec#1
Codec: LSI ID 1040
Address: 1
Vendor Id: 0x11c11040
Subsystem Id: 0x11790001
Revision Id: 0x100200
Modem Function Group: 0x1

The audio card hosts a softmodem chip: 0x11c11040
If not a Conexant modem, the driver agrsm with its dependent drivers:

provide audio + modem support with the modem chip residing on the subsystem.
Any particular card can host any one of several soft modem chips.

Writing DOCs/Intel.txt

LSI/AgereSystems produces several modem chipsets produces several chipsets supported by
an agrsm software packages. This includes some modems identifiable by their PCI IDs and
others requiring ALSA diagnostics to recognize the chip, such as the 11c11040 chip hosted
on the Subsystems of many High Definition Audio cards.

There are support packages at
The agrsm-tools package supports driver autoloading, but does not itself contain drivers.
For Debian/Ubuntu related distros, there are a few kernel-version specific packages:
are respectively for systems with Ubuntu 2.6.27-7-generic and 2.6.27-7-generic kernels.
agrsm-ubuntu8.04.1-2.6.24-19-generic.tar.gz is for 2.6.24-19-generic kernels.

The currently used agrsm code is from updates at

Completed candidate modem analyses.

The base of the UDEV device file system is: /dev/.udev

Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.3.2
and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.3.2

The patch utility is needed and is needed for compiling ALSA drivers, and possibly others.

Minimal compiling resources appear complete:
make utility - /usr/bin/make
Compiler version 4.3
linuc_headers base folder /lib/modules/2.6.27-7-generic/build

However some compilations and executable functions may need additional files,
in the FileNames.h (so called kernel "h"eaders) collection installed in /usr/include/ .
For martian_modem, additional required packages are needed. The also required headers of package libc6 are commonly installed by default.
Compiling hsfmodem drivers does require linux-libc-dev and libc6-dev packages, for kernels 2.6.24 and later versions.
In not included on your install CD, search for them at' TARGET='_blank'>
or comparable Repository for other Linux distros.
When compiling ALSA drivers, the utility "patch" will also be needed.

If a driver compilation fails, with message including some lack of some FileName.h (stdio.h for example), then
Some additional kernel-header files need installation to /usr/include. The minimal additional packages are libc6-dev
and any of its dependents, under Ubuntu linux-libc-dev

If an alternate ethernet connection is available,
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get -s install linux-kernel-devel
will install needed packages.
For Debian/Ubuntu related distributions, run the following command to display the needed package list:

Otherwise packages have to be found through' TARGET='_blank'>
Once downloaded and transferred into a Linux partition,
they can be installed alltogether with:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Checking pppd properties:
-rwsr-xr-- 1 root dip 273064 2008-10-16 09:51 /usr/sbin/pppd

In case of an "error 17" "serial loopback" problem, see:

To enable dialout without Root permission do:
$ su - root (not for Ubuntu)
sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd
or under Ubuntu related Linuxes
sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd

Checking settings of: /etc/ppp/options
asyncmap 0
lcp-echo-interval 30

In case of a message like:
Warning: Could not modify /etc/ppp/pap-secrets: Permission denied

Read Modem/DOCs/YourSystem.txt concerning other COMM channels: eth0
