What modem to buy? (UK)


Hey all,

Just wondering what modems you all use? I want to get a new one, that is not a stupid winmodem, so it'll be a lot easier. I just want a decent modem, that I don't have to emss around with so I can get into using Linux a lot better.

Anyway, what modem would you recommend I get (preferably cheap, and available in the UK!).

Cheers!

Buy external, and buy SPECIALLY the one that says, LINUX COMPATIBLE (Hint:wink, wink), ok?...oh yeah, don't buy USB, ok too?, get serial, , follow advice and suffer not.

dabs.com have a Dabs Value serial modem for 25 which is actually a v.92 upgradable Intel Ambient 56k. I've used it for about a year in Linux and it works great.
