I am running suse 10 on my pc, and I have some difficulties with my internet connection. I am using a usb modem (winmodem): diamond supra. I am aware of the difficulty that linux faces while trying to recognize a winmodem, but the wired think about this distribution is that it actually recognized my exact modem type. (Diamond SupraMax 2890 56K Modem [Lucent Atlas]), which is exactly the type of modem I am using.
(Other distributions did not recognise it at all). Unfortunately for me I was unable to get connected to the internet (the modem did never dial)
When I am clicking on the modem icon (from yast window) I get following message from the modem property window:
Diamond SupraMax 2890 56K Modem [Lucent Atlas]
Device Name: modem0
Does suse 10 recognize my modem or not?
What do I have to do get connected to the Internet? Should I better purchase a new modem?
1. suse 10 is a beta release and
2. The specific modem is listed as an unknown device on Novels supported hardware
2. I never used linux before --> I may not have configured the internet connection properly...
