possible that your external modem is actually a 'winmodem' without knowing model numbers etc I can't say for sure.
u might find the following site of interest as it explains what win modems are
and as for drivers the following might be of help (course it might not...... but you takes your chances )
note intel took over ambient in 2000

whats the problem? does it dial and you just cant do anything? or does it not even want to dial? i know alot of people forget to set up DNS settings in linux, you HAVE to set up DNS it doesnt do it for you automatically.
Also i suggest getting an updated driver for your modem,
also what program are you using to dial up? i think i used touse KPPP try that.

I'had tried KPPP...and when I press connect...it says "connecting to:MY ISP>>>>>>initializing modem....(and then it seems never connected),and I tried to go GNOME programm..>>>and I'had make configuration at "DIALUP CONFIGURATION"..when I press "debug"..it says
WvDial:internet dialer version 1.41
Modem not responding
ERROR:unable to initialiaze modem
And the funny part is I bought that modem "AMBIENT 56k EXTERNAL MODEM"..write down in the box of that modem ..I can use that for linux....hmmmmmmmmm..

I think dome is right sounds like you need a new driver. . .I had a winmodem do that to me (modem not responding. . .unable to initialise) got a new driver off the net, installed and suddenly. . .BAM it worked. . .
Every now and then, one of you won't annoy me.

totally suggest lookin for a new driver, google it or something, look for a linux driver specificly for your modem. Most of the time linux just uses default modem and some dont catch on to that, also make sure everything with your serial port is in check... try un plugging it restarting, letting linux remove the hardwarethen plugging it in again and letting it install it again, make sure linux is looking for the correct device as well.

Look for the obvious, first.
Is the modem connected to a Com port that is actually enabled? What Com port is it; and is the IRQ and the IO address correct for the port.
Is the cable correct?
