My first thought was to dig out my BBC Micro and serial modem, but that would be a bit of a faff and I'd have to deal with finding a suitable monitor, hoping the PSU caps are still working, etc... I then remembered that my T420 has a RJ45 modem port on the back. Unfortunately (or fortunately, in my opinion) it's running Linux (Debian 9 Stable) - I haven't managed to find any mention of what drivers / software I'd need to make the modem work. The vast majority of webpages are about the cellular modem, whereas I'm interested in the RJ45 dial-up one.
Has anyone had any success in using the dial-up modem in the T420 whilst using Linux?
