I've installed Mandrake 9.1 and everything works 100% except for a small problem with my adsl modem, it is correctly detected, but is identified as a scanner on kde... how can i force it to be identified as a modem to use it for internet connection?

forgot to mention it is an USB modem (Zyxel Prestige 630)
thank you for any help

I'm not sure if this would work or not, but I know there are A LoT less problems when you run a cable modem through the ethernet port rather than the USB. Running it with ethernet just makes the computer recognize it as a gateway to the internet, so you don't have to trouble with problems like that. It might be different on DSL though because of the PPPoE connection.
