How to install Ubuntu Driver for modem Nortek lanJET (tutorial for Ubuntu Feisty Fawn)

italian version: 


1- Connect your modem at the usb port

2- Type lsusb in your shell: your output must be something like this:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0915:8102 GlobeSpan, Inc. (Globespan is the name of the chipset of your modem)

3- Download from the file eciadsl-usermode-0.11-synch-patch.tar.bz2

4- then type in your shell: sudo ln -sf /bin/bash /bin/sh

5- Download the pppoe package from
and te Build-essential package from

6- Extract eciadsl-usermode-0.11-synch-patch.tar.bz2 package (right mouse click -> Extract). Then open the terminal and enter in the folder that you’ve just created. Type: ./configure


sudo make install

7- Extract eciadsl-synch_bin.tar.bz2 wherever you want and enter in the new folder. Type:

sudo cp *.bin /etc/eciadsl/

8- Now start the real configuration of your modem. Type:

sudo eciadsl-config-text

now you have to select:

-configure all settings

-id name of the internet connection

-number of your provider

-DNS (you can leave the default number)

-VPI and VCI number

-select the number of your Nortek Modem

-leave VDI1, PDI1, VDI2, PDI2 at their default value

-select the chipset GS7470 or GS7070, the ALT INTERFACE for SYNCH and for PPPOECI (check those number here

-select VCM_RFC2364

-press ENTER and if all is ok type in in your terminal: sudo eciadsl-start and you will run the program. The connection is done in 5 phases, but the most important are the synchronization and the connection to the provider. When you have success in this 2 phases the connection must be established. At the end of eciadsl-config-text the program create the configuration file eciadsl.conf in /etc/eciadsl/.

According to me the best synchronization value with this modem is





all the other value depends on your internet connection.
