Just cos the SuSE can see the modem, it doesn't mean that you don't need the driver(s).

Have you checked out the modem here ? Cos that seems to be the place that has lot's of the answers in respect of winmodem's.

Failing that, as you're in Enfield, sign up to a cheap ADSL service - but don't go for a USB modem, cos they can also be a pain to config. I use a solwise modem/router into an ethernet card and it work's a treat heres the place to find out the relevant stuff on prices and hardware etc

John You Totally Rock thanks for the Help Much aprecciated I will inquire about ADSL and is it faster then cable?
Also Is running linux in broadband faster than windows?
I just want to clarify one thing my friend runs a Athlon Xp 2500 with 256 ram and he runs windows XP home he says that is faster than linux could you find some proof that linux is faster preferbly a bench mark but not needed urgently
