Internal Modems in Laptops and Notebooks with Linux (Compatibility Status)

Laptop Survey

The Linux status of the laptop models reported below, is changing and improving. Therefore, if a laptop is reported as "unsupported" you should give it a try. Why is this survey valuable though: To encourage people which want to buy a "working" stated machine (remember: no guarantees) and to collect technical information (what chips are used) about different models.

To get your modem to work, here are some tips and tricks and a survey of drivers for laptop modems.

If you like to contribute your experiences with your internal modem and Linux (whether good or bad), I would gladly appreciate your help.

PDAs, Cell Phones, PCMCIA Cards

The Freestyle Executive Monster PDA made by Digital has an in-built modem, its Linux status is unknown. For IrDA connections to cell phones see Linux and InfraRed Devices. The 3CCFEM656B PCMCIA card by 3COM doesn't work. "The modem on the 3CCFEM656B is a Winmodem. The ethernet will work under Linux, but not the modem." Dave Hinds in comp.os.linux.portable. For PCMCIA modems see my PCMCIA card survey (by types) and the Xmodem.org survey.
