PostPosted: Mon 19 Oct 2009, 23:02    Post_subject:  Intel 537 modem drivers for 4.3.1-k2.6.25.16
Sub_title: Full set of 537 drivers to match those in 4.3.1-k2.6.30.5

I provide here the Intel 537 drivers included in the main (k2.6.30.5) puppy 4.3.1. If your Intel 537 modem is not detected by the older driver included in the k2.6.25.16 puppy 4.3.1, it should be supported by one of these variants of the driver, depending on its hardware IDs:

vendor e159, device 0001 intel537
vendor 1813, device 3052 intel537

vendor 8086, device 1080 intel537EP
vendor 1543, device 3052 intel537EP

vendor 10b9, device 5457 intel537EA
vendor 1002, device 434D intel537EA
vendor 8086, device 2446 intel537EA
vendor 8086, device 24c6 intel537EA
vendor 8086, device 24d6 intel537EA
vendor 10de, device 01c1 intel537EA
vendor 1039, device 7013 intel537EA
vendor 1106, device 3068 intel537EA

vendor 8086, device 1040, subsystem_vendor 8086, subsystem_device 1005 intel537SP

Use pupscan to identify your modem, then download and install only the driver for your modem, unless you need others for other reasons.

If you need to uninstall these drivers, afterward, in order to restore use of the orignal driver (Intel537), the directory /lib/modules/ must be deleted.

NOTE: If you are including these drivers in a puplet, you can delete/omit the old driver, /lib/modules/

Can I install these drivers and still use the right driver for whatever hardware that is being used?

I am not sure what you are asking. If you are unsure of which driver to install for your modem, yes, you could install all of them -- or one at a time and test each -- and only the correct one for your Intel 537 modem will be used. Then you could uninstall the ones you don't need, if you want to reclaim their space, but that is not necessary. If you are using another kind of modem, these drivers will not interfere, other than using up many megabytes of pupsave-file space.

The simplest way would be to run Menu > System > PupScan to find your modem's vendor and device IDs, then finding the correct driver from the list in my previous posting here.
