[vox-tech] Lucent Venus modem worked for about 1/2 hour then stopped working

I purchased a Lectron I56LVP-F3 modem today at Frys electronics and 
installed it in my computer which dual-boots Mandrake 8.1 and Windows 
2000. For about 1/2 hour after installing the modem, I was able to 
successfully connect to the internet using this modem, and HardDrake would 
cooperate with the modem. As I was experimenting with various different 
utilities to initiate a PPP connection to my provider, at some point the 
modem suddenly stopped working and HardDrake started to believe it was a 
winmodem. I reinstalled Mandrake 8.1 (for lack of any better idea what to 
do) to no avail. Mandrake still thinks my Venus modem is a winmodem.

I did not have to perform the setserial command to make the modem work 
correctly, (harddrake got that right automatically when the modem was 
working, and it still seems to be getting it right) and I did not have to 
install any drivers to get it to work for that 1/2 hour. But it doesn't 
work anymore, even after a reinstall of the system.

Any ideas how to make it work?
