Conexant drivers are no longer free..

In reply to: After that much work...

since kernel 2.6 came out. Before that, the original beta drivers would still compile on 2.4, but 2.6 was changed. The drivers now cost around $15 or so, though they claim you can then get different ones for other computers or distros for free for yourself.

Of course, if you chose to run an old distro with kerneal 2.4, you can still get the beta drivers for free.

The serial external modem most cheap runs what? $20? If you are in a fixed location, that is a great solution, and will last as long as you have computer with serial plug. In my case, I am simply not going to drag around a modem almost as big as my laptop, and have to connect it every time I want to use dial-up.

USB Modems..

Are an alternative. I got 5 of them free with some other purchase and ... they work well with Linux and don't require an AC power pack. I've seen them as low as 10 bucks on ebay.

The unit is about the size of a PDA.
