However, they would still require significant advances in home PCs’ CPU power in order to compete with hardware modems in terms of performance and reliability. The VM is an interface between a phone line and a sound card. They should be available as an rpm on the CDs your distro came with. Conexant ‘s HCF standard also falls into the controllerless category. The audio signals to be transmitted must be computed on a tight interval on the order of every 5 or 10 milliseconds ; they cannot be computed in advance, and they cannot be late or the receiving modem will lose synchronization.

Must be due to bad telephone connection.

The first softmodem-related announcements were made by MotorolaIntel and other companies, back inclaiming that an ordinary sound card and some CPU power would be enough to emulate the functionality of an actual modem, although “sound card telephone adapters” and related software was never released or at least never caught on.

This is an issue of great importance to real-time gamers, as the slightest decrease in latency translates into a higher score.

Conexant Winmodem

Thanks for the reply. Think “call recording with no off-hook click”. If I do rpm -i it will work, but what do I need to do after that??? As more sophisticated transmission schemes were devised, the circuits grew in complexity substantially. Ars Praefectus et Subscriptor. Think “contact database with integral dialler, and answering machine recognition”. If you can’t find the file on your CDs, I found it on rpmfind.


Many of the latest softmodem chipsets, e. I got the drivers from a link on the LinModems site and duly installed.

I downloaded a binary. Visit the following links: Any such reputation has not, however, halted their market popularity; most internal 56k modems produced since have been software-based. There are many applications for a Winmodem if you stop thinking of it as a modem, and start thinking of it as a telephone interface: Sun Apr 14, 4: I’m running a LucenT winmodem NB.

All times are GMT wunmodem Winmodems have earned a certain notoriety for conexnt down their host computer systems and for having buggy drivers, although this reputation cconexant largely garnered during the period of their introduction to the mass market, whereupon they were apt to use substandard drivers and be found in entry-level computers with slow CPUs.

I am online now with my winmodem in Red Hat Linux 56k hcf conexant. By offering or claiming to offer the same functionality as a hardware modem at a fraction of the price and theoretically a capacity for unlimited upgrades, the advantages of software-based modems became compelling. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.


A lot of people claim that a Winmodem has no place in a Linux box. Is there any way to try to combat this problem? Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Please download and run the scanModem tool before sending any query to discuss linmodems.

hsf/hcf conexant winmodem support?

Modems from a single manufacturer can coneaxnt different chips. The advantage of software upgradeability was diminished when many newer hardware modems gained the ability to upgrade firmware to support new standards. Feb 10, Posts: Some chipsets are listed below. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. YOu have a Lucent?

However, they would still require significant advances in home PCs’ CPU power in order to compete with hardware modems in terms of performance and reliability. Robotics literature presently uses “Winmodem” for controllerless modems, and “Softmodem” for pure software modems.
