The problem you describe is common in the 4.x versions of FBSD. I have seen these solutions voiced previously in this list.
1. Check the PC's bios, look for a toggle to disable plug-n-play function. 2. Check that your PCI card is not in the first or last PCI expansion slot on the motherboard. 3. Disable com1 & com2 in PC's bois 4 add option PCI_ENABLE_IO_MODES to your kernel source and recompile. See LINT 5. add device puc option PUC_FASTINTR to your kernel source and recompile. See LINT 6. Follow bug fix using this url http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=40636 Try one of the above, one at a time until your problem goes away. -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Behalf Of Alex Sent: Sunday, September 21, 2003 5:58 PM To: FreeBSD Questions Subject: PCI modem troubles I'm having a little trouble getting FreeBSD 4.8 to recognize my PCI modem. I have a US Robotics 56k Performance Pro Modem (not a Winmodem) that FreeBSD stubbornly refuses to talk to. At the urging of kind people on this list, I enabled "pccard" in my rc.conf file and I set up my kernel config file with the line "device sio" after commenting out sio1 and 2, i.e.: # device sio2 at isa? port IO_COM3 irq 5 # device sio3 at isa? disable port IO_COM4 irq 9 device sio The system is still not recognizing the modem on PC1, as the message in "dmesg" reads pci1: <unknown card> (vendor=0x12b9, dev=0x1008) at 8.0 Things got even more interesting when I looked at the output of "pciconf -lv", as the follwoign lines came up: [EMAIL PROTECTED]:8:0: class=0x070002 card=0x00d312b9 chip=0x100812b9 rev=0x01 hdr=0x00 vendor = '3COM Corp, Modem Division (Formerly US Robotics)' device = '3cp803598 USR 56k Internal Modem' class = simple comms subclass = UART It looks like the system is actually finding the modem and is recognizing it, but for reasons beyond my understanding it stops short of actually talking to the thing. Can anyone offer any suggestions?
