"real" HW modems need no driver at all. Just work on a Serial Port (or
USB/ISA/PCI devices that implement a Serial Port) with AT commands.
I have several external and various PCI & ISA models that need no
drivers on ANY OS.
"Software" Modems or Soundcard modems also have a tendency to drop
packets if you do something "busy" on your PC/Laptop.
Because the scope of this project has grown beyond the capacity of a
single volunteer and legal issues prevent us from using a classic
open-source development model, the HCF and HSF drivers are now available
in two editions:
# a *free* version (limited to 14.4Kbps data), available at no cost.
Please use it to test if your hardware is compatible.
# a *full* version (with 56K and FAX), available for a modest price
The DGC driver is available at no charge. Proceeds will be used to
further improve the drivers. Getting the full version
<http://www.linuxant.com/store/> is the best way to encourage us and
ensure that this project continues.
*If you are wondering why a Linux driver isn't already included in the
price you paid for your modem, or disagree with the practice of selling
Linux software, please read this explanation
