    Hi All

    I'm going to be without my broadband connection for a while due to Sky messing me around so I was thinking of getting dial-up modem for the time being [as my iMac doesn't have one built in]. Now, I've seen a couple but they don't come with mac drivers. Do you think they'll just work without them, will OSX use default drivers or something?

    Or should I just try abd find a modem that states it has mac support?

    Many thanks
    RJ

    Apple sell a USB Modem (search for this on the online store) that will work in OS X, but not Windows. Not cheap at £35.00, but guaranteed compatibility.

    Cheers for that.

    So that's a dial-up 56k modem?

    As long as you're looking at the one called "Apple USB Modem", yes
