    Hi there,

    after a long, never ending period where I tried to save some money for a good laptop I'm now close to buying a laptop (Lenovo or MBP). Anyway I need to know if the MBP can address the USB Modem as Windows requires special drivers. I don't know if Mac OS X will be able to handle the modem.

    Your answers are much appreciated.

    Driver download page

    However I tried to get it to work on my machine running Leopard and couldn't get it working at all. So I don't think it will work. It is quite a old modem though.

    Yeah found that site as well so I was asking here to find out about leopard and that stuff. Found a site for Linux where I can download an universal driver. **** :(

    Your mileage may vary as I didn't try too hard as it was while I was at my parents house so it wasn't vital for me to get it working. But I think the problem stems from the fact that apple changing the networking a bit in Leopard over Tiger. Although that said I just installed the driver again and it appears to be a lot better behaved (most probably Leopard being better behaved). So perhaps you could get it working.

    If not then I'm sure you could get a compatible usb modem for cheap these days.
