Im not familiar with Redhat, but is there an app in Redhat thats similar to Suse 8.1's Xkill? I'd try to see if you could xkill that app when you want to disconnect.

Maybe there is something wrong with the driver...
Who can offer me another driver download address of this modem?
Thanks!

8.0 might have drivers already in the distro, or if upgrading is not an option you could buy a new modem, since WinModems are for Windows.

Winmodems are mostly a hit or miss thing in Linux... you are much better off buying a USR or Lucent-based one. But when you're buying the modem, make sure it says it works with Linux. I know most of the ones dont say that. They are called WinModems because Windows emulates most of the modem features that arent on the chip and arent really modems but dumb ones.
