pci modem ??????

Hi, all

I have just installed QRTP 6.10 on my HP Pavilion machine, everything is
fine except can not connect to the Internet. since the modem in this machine
is Lucent Win Modem.

So i decide to buy another modem which can be supported by QRTP, and checked
the web page http://qdn.qnx.com/support/hardware/platform/pcmcia.html
, but I can not get much info from there.
No idea which type of modem i should buy ?

Anyone can help me ???

Thanks

Hi,

I believe it’s dependent from your ISP and quality of your line. Could you
ask this question your ISP? Do you know which type of modems are in your
ISP? Or which protocol is preferable for you? If you have got this
information you can easily navigate through big list of manufacturers and
models.

Regards,
Eduard.

Hi,

As long as your modem is NOT a WinModem you are safe with QNX.

Usually

You might also check the price. Under $50.00 and it is most
like a Win Modem.

Personally, I prefer external modems. Almost all external
modems are NOT Win modems. You get little blinking lights
that help you figure out what is going wrong, and they
are easy to replace.

Haomin,

And in addition, you will not need to reboot system if your external modem
takes a “frozen” state.

Eduard.

Do you mean it does matter it is a usb or serial port connection, right ? as
long as it is aa external modem ??

You could check > http://qdn.qnx.com/news/communitychest/qnx6.1.0.html

So, QNX RTP include the USB driver:
devn-pegasus.so USB Class Driver for the Pegasus Ethernet dongle

I’m not sure it’s appropriate for you. May be, anyone knows more…
I’m sure the ordinary external modem with COM connection (RS-232) is a best
solution for you.

Best regards,
Eduard.

Haomin,

It’s a pity, but I have no any experience with usb modems. I believe, both
are external modem because they are external devices. I prefer com modems.

Regards,
Eduard.

At this time, RTOS support for USB devices is very spotty. As far as I
know, there are no supported USB modems and no supported USB to serial port
drivers.
Your only good solution is an external modem using the RS232 connection.

That’s it in a nut shell.

Hi Phil,

I advised Haomin to buy external modem using the RS232 connection. Perhaps
I misinterpreted his question, but I guess he was wondering USB modem is
external or not. Regardless of OS…

Eduard.

How’d we get here. I have no experience with USB external modems. My
comments were purely about external serial modems. Note that internal
modems are always a combination of an internal serial port + a modem.

NO … , thats a KingCon, LOL

on the subject of Amiga Shells/CLI`s anyone advanced enough
to port or recreate one for RTP as then it would be a very
easy task to use many existing amiga shell scripts with the
Photon ReqestFile, RequestChoice and RequestText to create simple
Photon FrontEnds to the many RTP Shell commands without being
a hardcore coder.
