View Full Version : usb/pci adsl modems.

what's with the growing trend (particularly in europe i've noticed) for isp's to supply dsl modems which:
1) only allows one computer to be connected.
2) only works in windows.
3) provides crappy/slow/unreliable internet service.

it it merely a least cost option? and do these isp's offer an alternative when their cheap *** equipment doesn't work on the user's pc?

It's probably a cost thing seeing most isp's simply give the crap away when you sign up.

Over here we pay for all version but atleast the customer has a choice of a usb modem or an ethernet router which obviously costs more.

I would just buy my own...
