PCI Controller-based serial modem not detected by Network applet; wvdialconf sees it as ttyS4

Bug #82766 reported by Daniel Dickinson on 2007-02-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Using the network applet (System|Administration|Network) to configure my PCI controller-based serial modem fails as the modem cannot be autodetected. wvdialconf located the modem as /dev/ttyS4 and doing ln -s /dev/ttyS4 /dev/modem then autodetecting the modem works. It appears that the modem applet only check ttyS0-ttyS3 (which are also available from the drop down list, but ttyS4 must be manually typed).

The modem is a 3Com 56K OEM PCI modem (V.90) with a serial controller (i.e. it is not a winmodem). I can get the exact modem and/or lspci output if you need it, but I suspect the main thing is the range of ports checked.

Also, gnome-ppp from universe works fine.
