Hello! (and something about ActionTec...)

Hi guys,

This is my first post here, so hello!

I've managed to set up a linux box from scrounged parts, with the intention of using it as a firewall and router for my two other PCs. I got it working with my old dial up modem, and for a time, it was good.

Unfortunately, I bought an ActionTec Home DSL USB modem when I had BT Broadband switched on. Dirt cheap, works wonderfully under Win2k, but I can't for the life of me find a linux driver for it (I'm using redhat 9 if that's important).

I've had a good Google for it, looked around the ActionTec site, and I've searched this site as well. It's been mentioned a couple of times on here, but no-one seems to have found one.

So - does anyone know of a driver which will allow me to use an ActionTec HomeDSL modem under Linux?

Thanks in advance,
