Speedtouch and Xandros


I am a complete beginner but have managed to install Xandros version2 onto a spare hard drive. I connect to the internet with a Speedtouch 330 adsl modem conneted to a usb port. It is displayed on the devise list but not detected when trying to configure the internet connection. A friend also has the same problem with Ubuntu 5.10
A computer 'guru' has said that we are lacking the firmware ? If that is the case what is it where can we get it from bearing in mind that we cannot conect to the web sites to down load it.

Help appreciated.

Bah google could have told you that, dunno if it's what you need, get it and check the read me, there are also user guides. If it's not actually drivers, it says to contact your ISP.

Obviously no net is bound to be a problem, but you are on here with some connection so you can download it and put it on some sort of removable media.

Angry Speedtouch

I think I have go the file i need on a floppy but how do I get the system to open the drive and download it. I donot seem to have a floppy drive recognised on the Ubuntu system. Its there but does nothing when the icon is clicked.

Getting frustrated.
