The Apple GeoPort Telecom Adapter Pod is not actually a modem, but a line adapter interface which connects a telephone line with the GeoPort serial port of a Power Macintosh. The "modem" is actually software, running under the Mac OS on the Power Mac.

For this reason, the BeOS does not support the GeoPort adapter. In order to use a modem on the BeOS, you must have a full and actual modem, not an adapter.

Note that it is not impossible for this adapter to be used with the BeOS, but Apple would need to write software to do so. Be would be delighted to work with Apple to assist them in this effort. Contact Apple to let them know that as a customer, support for the BeOS is important to you.
