İ saw them but I cannot configure, because I need somebody show me please make a link in youtube or another videosite, please :'(

how does the modem connect to the system (if it is external). If it is internal can you give the output of:

lspci

Thanks

E142036.1

what do I have to de?

You dont need root to run lspci, your user can run the command.

The modem is not showing up. You will need to ask in a VMWare forum on how to get the modem visible in the guest OS.

But I wrote here my modem cart which I use, I had its driver disk but unfourtinatly I lost it, now I use Smartlink 56 Fax Modem driver in XP

Mehman Jamalov (mcamalov) said : #8

and it works well

The modem isn't visible in Ubuntu. If you get connected via dialup on the host, then boot the guest, can you ping 8.8.8.8 ?

Mehman Jamalov (mcamalov) said : #10

what will happen if I do this?and how can i ping ?

Same as in ANY OS you can name

Mehman Jamalov (mcamalov) said : #12

IS NOT HERE ANYONE CAN INSERT VIDEO TO WATCH HOW INSTALL THIS FUCKED MODEM???

its not the modem at fault, and kill the caps and the language. Being a troll is not a good way to get people to help you, is it.

Your VMware config has not got the modem into the guest OS. Maybe the default config simply sees a network interface but if not then you will need VMWare help to configure the VMWare server to present the modem as a device to the guest. If you need to and have not configured the guest then it will not work. It's that simple.

if you can get connected with the modem and ping 8.8.8.8 in a terminal, then you know it is ok and already working, if not I suggest you post on a VMWare forum as Ubuntu is utilizing the hardware available to it.

user@user:~$ ping 8.8.8.8
connect: Network is unreachable

Hey my friend I few minutes age I opened my processor's case and take out my dialup connector modem and on it was this words
Intex Conexant Modem 11252
Conexant HSFI
CX11252-11
E142036.1

I know this is my modem driver name that supportes its devide in Windows Xp,doesn t it?Ok, what will change in Linux Ubuntu?Ubuntu also have to support that modem device with its driver, yeah? but it will not be .exe file, it will be .deb file or I have to configure something to get that modem, yes or not?

After knowing this I will use Ubuntu 10.10

the modem will appear as a virtual device so what is written on the chip is of no value, if you were running a true OS then not only woyuld the modem be visible but easily configurable. You have failed to configure your VMware server to give the guest OS access to the device, which is why it doesn't appear in teh lspci output in the Ubuntu guest. ALL hardware in vmware is virtaulized and you can configure guests to have access to certain hardware.

As the hardware is not visible to the guest OS there is absolutely ZERO change it will work, what do you expect the OS to do?? It cannot see the hardware so how do you expect an OS to use none-existant hardware?? It makes no sense at all. I have explained this many many times. You need to post on a VMWare forum to learn how to configure VMWare properly so that the modem is present in the guest OS, it can then be configured but until such time it simply is not going to happen.

The fact that 8.8.8.8 (Google's public DNS servers) do not ping indicates that the modem connection present in the host is not being brough into the guest.

ok, i will configure my VMware server to give the guest OS access to the device and after configuering I will be here
