    The ethernet port on my iMac DV SE 500, Panther, was just struck by lightning. My cable modem is a Toshiba PCX1100U, and has USB capabilities, but Road Runner does not have any Mac drivers. Anybody know where I can get a Mac USB driver for my modem? Or other possibilities? Is there a firewire cable modem available? Can I repair the ethernet port with out replacing the whole motherboard (the PHY IC)? Anybody got an inexpensive motherboard?
    Call: 512-244-3935, or email or post.
    Thanks

    you dont need drivers at all plug it in and set it the prefs to automatic. it will recognize it.

    and you can test it with a scanner usb plug if it didnt already come with one.
