One of my software did not run in Linux

Intel / Awrdacpi

Specs: Windows XP, 2.266 GHz / 1015 MB
When I installed Ubuntu on my PC, I found that my modem is not capable in Linux's environment, that's why I can't access the internet. So is there a way to at least run only one Windows program in Linux? Is there any compatibility mode for this?

Most likely your modem is a so called Winmodem which requires a special driver to work.These drivers are not always available for Linux. Many Windows programs can be run on Linux by using WINE (essentially a Windows emulator) but this won't help you access the internet.

These days most people access the internet with a network interface to DSL or a cable mdem. If this is not possible you must have a compatible modem.

@ ijack
I have a software that is integrated with the modem. When I first time insert the modem(USB) in the port then setup itself run, and the application launches and let me to connect to the internet. After 1st time i.e. 2nd and 3rd time the application automatically launches if I insert the modem into the port.

@ LMiller7
This is not possible to me to have such type of connection. BTW thanks for your suggestion..

Without this information no-one can possibly help you. There is a chance that they may be able to help if they know what hardware you are using.

Are you asking about the modem supplied by your ISP? Is it cable or DSL? And why are you using USB instead of ethernet?

Try to keep to single questions as we can't think about two things at once. :)

Yes, there are ways to run some windows programs. A free way is to use a program called wine. There are also commercial programs that are similar and may work better.

There are also programs that may work alike the windows program..

As for the modem and we don't know the state of it just yet. It may work if we do some stuff or settings.

Modems/nic's tend to work one of three ways.
A native driver in linux with your distro.
An add on driver for your distro.
Install ndiswrapper to use windows drivers.

"There is one Tata Photon model cm200 which will work with Linux easily and I am also using it with my system without any problem. Before using it you have to make a look on user manual which you can read from its main website. It is PDF file, download it on your system and then follow its instructions. All CM200 driver are given in deb format therefore to install them use binpkg ---getbinpkgonly onn your Linux Gentoo."
