- Copied "Xircom" "CreditCard Modem Ethernet" section from
pccard.conf.sample, and altered product string to match
probed string "Xircom" "CreditCardModem CM-56T"
but does not work. Error: pccard no card on database...
Xircom CreditCard Modem CM-56
I tried changing the card line in conf to match
my modem, and tried it the original way.
I left everything else alone. User PPP accessed the
modem without complaint, there was no dial tone, the
lights on the modem cable dongle did not light up and
User PPP reported: dial failed
Misc Info :
I was very encouraged to see an entry in the
pccard.conf.sample for a Xircom Modem, but could not get it to
work. I am about to give up and get myself another modem for the
laptop. Any advice would be welcome.
