I've run into the following winmodems and thought I'd record my "experience" with them. (Really not much, I didn't try very hard to make them work -- found some "real" modems.)

Aside: I've noticed that this has been a very popular page (lots of hits, anyway) over the last several months. I feel rather bad, because I don't think there is very much information on this page. Remember that this is a wiki, and you can edit this page -- if you learn something that you feel would be helpful to others, why don't you consider adding it to this page? Thanks! -- RandyKramer - 25 Jun 2002

Phoenix (?) 1456VQH-R (Rockwell HCF 56K V90 Faxmodem)

FCC No: H8NTAI-25712-M5-E
P/N: 92765163
Recognition string in Linux: (approx) "Rockwell HCF 56K V90 Faxmodem"
Rockwell RLDL56DPF, R6785-62, ..., 9828 B59928.2
Rockwell 11229-14, ..., 9823 B63876.3 (Korea)
Comments: IIRC, Mandrake 8.1 recognized the modem during install, but there was no visible evidence that it had a driver. A Google search seemed to indicate that no Linux driver was available.

From http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Conexant+Rockwell-modem-HOWTO/:

First you need to find out if your modem is an HSF or HCF modem. If it's an HCF modem it won't work (an official HCF driver is due out from Conexant in May 2002). If it's an HSF modem read on.

Could that new driver be here Linux Drivers for Conexant modem chipsets?

Unknown I56LVP-F0 (Lucent Chipset)

FCC No: 2H9TAI-25492-M5-E
P/N: 202 89 1 052087
Recognition string in Linux: (approx)
Lucent 1034AH-J, 9837S, 32754741
Lucent 1646T00, REA 12, 9837S 1636543
Comments: Recognized in Mandrake 8.1 with indication that an external proprietary driver was required. A Google search turned up some links that could be useful, but I didn't record them. IIRC, the suggested driver name was something like "ltmodem".

<template for next modem>

Recognition string in Linux: (approx)


Also, since this page continues to get a lot of hits, and I feel bad because there is not much here, here are some pointers to some threads on mailing lists:

  • 3Com USR Modem Installation -- this thread has about 15 posts in it -- I didn't read them all, and it was a while ago -- if anybody bothers to view the thread, please consider noting the most useful ones here -- you can add the URL. Or, if my memory is faulty, and this thread is OT, note that here as well.

+++ Dynalink (MARS3, 1456VQH-T4, etc.)

Try Dynalink drivers for some modems with model numbers like:

  • MARS3 Smart PCI Modem - Lucent Chipset
  • 1456VQH-L2 Smart PCI Modem - Lucent Chipset
  • 1456VQH-T4 PCI Card56 - Lucent/Agere Chipset

Though most of the drivers are for the 32 bit windoze systems, there is a link to Linux drivers. Jump to this link, and open drivers, then Dial-up Modems, and Linux will be on the top right. It may not be THE solution, though one more tool is always usefull.

Apologies for not knowing format. You did fine! I don't think there is an established fixed format, just whatever seems to display the information in a usable fashion. I did change a few things to perhaps make it more clear. Thanks for the contribution!
