after getting a right telling off for not trying hard enough by someone (cant remmbr who, but it were on this forum) i did so!
i managed to find the drivers for the US Robotics ADSL 9000 at:
BUT the only problem is that it is all in french (the instructions, that is!)
Well, now i can do a PING from the console and it does this successfully - but i still cant use mozilla or anything else like that to actually SURF the net - how come?
what else do i need?
any help would be greatly appreciated!
