Looks like it might be easier than I thought. Check out Going to have a go tonight.

I hate to appear negative, but please do yourself a favour and throw that speedtouch into the rubbish bin. I used to have one - not the 330, the earlier model: it needed firmware to be uploaded each time it was booted before it would do anything (and I think yours probably needs this too). It took me a week to get working, and I had to start all over again whenever I moved distros, or upgraded. It is a useless piece of junk.

Then go & get yourself an all-in-one DSL modem / Firewall / router / switch that uses ethernet to connect to your PC. I got a Zoom X5, but there are all sorts out there and they are easy to set up, usually with a web-browser interface. It connects faultlessly, has a safe firewall set as default, and runs my network. Once it is set up (2mins), you can just forget about it. When I install another distro, the new distro "just finds" the internet on eth0 and I am off. I have never looked back.

Yep, you're right Tredegar. I have been looking into getting a router but I'm still stuck with my Speedtouch in the meantime. I suppose all PC problems could be solved by buying some new hardware, but much of the time you have to wait and make do!

Anyway: got it working (and it was really easy)!!! Just follow the instructions for the install of the script. When it runs enter your VCI and VPI (0 and 38 for the UK) and then your username and password and it does the rest. (There's even an example).

Easy peasy. Cheers for all the help guys.

Anyone who needs any assistance with it, just post and I'll try and help (although it's so straight forward I don't think you'll need to!)
