UMODEM(4)              FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual              UMODEM(4)

NAME
     umodem - USB modem support

SYNOPSIS
     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device umodem
           device ucom

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

           umodem_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The umodem driver provides support for USB modems in the Communication
     Device Class using the Abstract Control Model.  These modems are
     basically standard serial line modems, but they are accessed via USB
     instead.  They support a regular AT command set.  The commands can either
     be multiplexed with the data stream or handled through separate pipes.
     In the latter case the AT commands have to be given on a device separate
     from the data device.

     The device is accessed through the ucom(4) driver which makes it behave
     like a tty(4).

HARDWARE
     Devices supported by the umodem driver include:

     +o   3Com 5605
     +o   Curitel PC5740 Wireless Modem
     +o   Metricom Ricochet GS USB wireless modem
     +o   Sierra MC5720 Wireless Modem
     +o   Yamaha Broadband Wireless Router RTW65b
     +o   ELSA MicroLink 56k USB modem

SEE ALSO
     tty(4), ucom(4), usb(4)

HISTORY
     The umodem driver appeared in NetBSD 1.5.  This manual page was adopted
     from NetBSD by Tom Rhodes <trhodes@FreeBSD.org> in April 2002.

BUGS
     Only modems with multiplexed commands and data are supported at the
     moment.
