Hi there, I currently have a 56k dial-up connection for internet at home with two computers - a Dell 2.4GHz desktop running Windows XP and a 12" PowerBook. I now have an AirPort Express network (with AE card for 12" PB and 54MB Belkin wireless card for Dell) and AirTunes, etc. works fine. Currently I'm dialing up to the internet on the Dell and then making Windows share the connection over 802.11g to give my PowerBook wireless internet. Of course, this means I have to have the Dell on and connected to the inernet whenever I want to use it on my PowerBook, but I've finally convinced my parents to go broadband (only 256k mind, but it's a start). My vision was to then connect the broadband connection to the WAN port on the AirPort Express and beam the inernet 24/7 wirelessly to the two computers. We put the order in last Friday and it should take about 2 weeks for the connection at our local telephone exchange to be sorted out and for the free ADSL modem and microfilters to arrive. However, I've now received confirmation that the free modem is in fact an Alcatech Speedtouch USB ADSL modem. Now I'm thinking I might have to purchase even more equipment to get my wireless dream working. And this is where I need your help! It hasn't arrived yet, and I know little about modems and routers and the like, but it sounds like it is USB-powered. While compatible with both Windows and OS X, this would again require the Dell to be on for broadband to be received, wouldn't it? I know that the USB port on AirPort Express is only designed for printers (I have mine hooked up anyway). Does anyone own one of these USB modems and do they know if they come with an eternet port which can be plugged into AirPort Express? Or do I have to buy some kind of broadband router thing (I don't need wireless since I have AirPort Express)? Is this modem completely useless for what I need and, if so, does anyone know of a cheap ASDL modem that would connect my phone line to the AirPort Express? I've already spent £100 on APE, £80 on an AE card and £25 on the Dell wireless adaptor - I can't really afford to spend much more! Thanks for any help.
