I've got some problems with my winmodem.
The modems dials and connects fine ,but then it drops the connection and
that message shows up in my logs:

pppd[3150]: ppd 2.3.11 started by root ,uid 0
modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module tty-ldisc-3
ppd[3150] ioctl(TIOCSETD):Bad argument(22)

I've got kernel 2.4.1 and winmodem mocrocom deskporte 56k Internal/l with
the lucent chip.

what does it mean?
what does module tty-ldisc-3 do ?
Howto make it work?
Help me i'm desperate. 

                            yours truly
