Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

Please provide more information about your system by running "./getinfo.sh driver" and showing us the output file.

First result of a google on the Vendor:DeviceID is the Linuxant HSF (softmodem) driver page. As I recall from trying to use Linuxant drivers on an internal modem in a laptop years ago it was quite a painful experience, but could be made to work. I hope things have improved since those bad old days. The license still appears to be rather restrictive which probably explains the lack of packages in the usual repos.

hello again and thank you indeed for your kindly response :-)

I installed gcc and kernel-devel .

I installed "hsfmodem-7.80.02.06full-1.i386.rpm.zip" from

Generic packages with source

but installation is unsuccessful because of the following error:

No pre-built modules for redhat-el5.5 linux-2.6.18.194.11.1.el5 i686-smp
trying to automatically build the driver modules this require a c compiler and proper kernel sources to be installed.


what i need to can build the driver modules.
how can i download kernel source?

thank you very much for any help. :-)

The kernel-devel package is usually sufficient, but try a Wiki search to turn up HowTos/I_need_the_Kernel_Source.

Hello :)

Thank you for kindly response.
Unfortunately I couldn't install driver for that external modem.

I prepared an internal modem "Z_Cyber" and after I typed "Yum update", its driver installed .
I typed "lspci" and found the following :
Communication controller:conexant system ,INC, HCF 56 K Data/Fax/Voice SPKP modem (worldwide) (14f1:1056)

My question is, how can I change its' setting ?
Thank you very much for any help :)

Not having any idea of your knowledge level nor how you plan to manage your modem and network connections, and not having used a modem for a number of years myself, I can't say.

Perhaps the Deployment Guide, Section 16.4. Establishing a Modem Connection, an early result of a google on modem "enterprise linux 5" site:redhat.com, may help.

It would seem some confusion was introduced about the internal Conexant modem and the external D-Link modem the thread started with, which would be serially attached.
Not having used a modem for a long time, and not at all on Linux, I'd expect that external modem to be addressed through the serial port it is attached to. Whatever application uses that modem should allow for port and baud-rate selection, after which the modem would be controlled through its AT-command set. No driver required, at least not for the modem. I expect the serial port driver to be part of CentOS.

Unless I am missing something, the modem at the start of the thread is USB and not serial, and so would need a driver other than the serial-port driver.
