Please choose your distribution and kernel architecture or the proper package(s) for your system below.

Distribution-specific binary packages (easiest to install)

If your distribution/architecture is not listed, or you are using a special enterprise/secure/SMP or custom (self-compiled) kernel, or the package does not work with your kernel version, you should try one of the generic packages with source below instead.

* Note: Fedora, Freedows and RedHat users may find out their exact kernel architecture (which is not always the same as "uname -m" output) with the following case-sensitive shell command:
              rpm -q --qf '%{ARCH}\n' kernel
Generic packages with source

To use these generic packages, kernel-source and the gcc C compiler must be properly installed on your system to dynamically build the driver modules upon installation.
Format KArch Filename Size MD5 Checksum (md5sum)
RPM x86
(use on RPM-based systems like Mandriva/RedHat/SuSE/JDS/Freedows with custom or unsupported kernels)
1.4M 690bd34e205029aebbd1b7275ce112fe
DPKG x86
(use on Debian-based systems)
1.4M dc1b182e37812ffc47c74e32b1e23f6f
TAR x86 hsfmodem-
(option of last resort compatible with the most systems)
1.4M ba02812a59cfa15ec9cb8091fdd34297
RPM x86_64
(for RPM-based 64-bit systems with AMD64/EM64T extensions only)
1.5M e1339ce3a05e50135b89e0376c7e7a9f
TAR x86_64 hsfmodem-
(for other 64-bit systems with AMD64/EM64T extensions)
1.6M fe12b6fc899c4adeff6e461f85f099c2

If you are not sure which format to choose, please see the installation instructions.

Note to Fedora Core 2 to 6 and Fedora 7 users: The default stack size in original Fedora Core 2 to 6 and Fedora 7 kernels is only 4K. Because some drivers require more stack space to operate properly, we recommend using a kernel with a larger stack size if you experience problems or crashes. You can either rebuild your own custom kernel, or get one of our replacement "stk16" kernels provided for your convenience through the distribution-specific Fedora Core 2 to 6 and Fedora 7 links above.

Note to Ubuntu Jaunty (9.04), Hardy (8.04) and SUSE (11.0, 11.1) users with HDA modems: Installing the alsa-driver-linuxant package is necessary before installing this driver.

Optional modem documentation

The modem's AT command set documentation is available below.
