If I go into Network Configuration, highlight the modem and hit 'active' then the modem connects. However, the Network Configuration still shows the modem as inactive which is clearly not so.
When I was using RH9 the modem would have changed to active once it had connected.
In RH9 I simply highlighted the modem in Network Configuration and then hit 'deactivate' in order to disconnect.
I cannot do this in Fedora 1 because, although the modem is active, the software says this is not so. My only way to disconnect is to physically switch off the modem.
I don't think this is a hardware issue because I had no problems in RH9 and it is something that has developed in Fedora 1.
I had this problem when I did an upgrade from RH9 and it was repeated when I subsequently did a clean install.
I am surviving but it is something that does not seem to be working correctly.
