Fedora Core 2 + Intel Anypoint 3240 USB modem + BT Openworld ADSL?


I'm trying to connect a Fedora Core 2 box to BT Openworld ADSL connection (in the UK), and have inherited an Intel Anypoint USB modem (3240).

After some research, it appears that getting the connection working under FC2 may be less than straightforward.

So my question is:

1. Has anyone managed to get connected to BT Openworld ADSL using the above USB modem under FC2? or ....

2. Would I be better off throwing away the USB-modem and replacing it with an ethernet ADSL modem/router? If so, which hardware would speak nicely to BT?


Any other hints regarding connection to BT using Redhat/Fedora would obviously be welcome!


--Neil.


P.S. Wasn't sure whether to post this in Hardware or Networking, so maybe I'll post in both ... please forgive the "spamming"!

I'm with BT and using fedora core 2. I didn't even try to use the usb modem they gave me when I signed up, as I've got an eathernet adsl modem, d-link 300g which works well.

Since posting this morning it had become clear that configuring the USB modem was going to be a pain ... so I bit the bullet & got hold of Netgear ethernet modem/router (DG834 ADSL firewall router, which is overkill for my purposes, but was the only one in stock, oh well). For anyone else trying a similar setup, I can confirm that it is indeed a 5 minute job.

Thanks for your input, guys -- much appreciated.


--Neil.
