5.1 is on my computer at the moment, I will install 4.7 tonight and send you the GENERIC dmesg.boot file tomorrow. I have not set up my ppp yet, I don't know how to do it for usb, the way I understand it ucom lets you use the usb modem like a tty but I have not been able to get that right. Am I taking the wrong approach?
Btw. My usb modem works in WinXP, I boot it in FreeBSD plugged in but there is no hardware switch to put it on, is this going to be a problem. It is a AzTech UM9100, there are Linux drivers so it should work in FreeBSD too. Thanks for all your help so far.
