    Hello, everyone.

    I've just installed Ubuntu - my first experience of trying another OS other than Windows.

    When I installed my SpeedTouch 330 broadband modem in XP, I of course, had to use its installation drivers CD to set it up to work with Outlook Express and IE.

    Would I need to do this again on Ubuntu so that it can automatically configure the required connections for me?

    I’ve tried setting up the connections manually, but whatever I enter relating to IP addresses, etc, does not work and I get connection error messages.

    Cheers,

    Dave.

    I've had to set up the same modem for a friend on Ubuntu.

    It was relativly easy once I found the following :

    http://steve-parker.org/speedtouchconf/
    Provides a set of scripts that work with ...

    http://speedtouch.sourceforge.net/
    the configuration files provided by these guys, which use...

    http://steve-parker.org/speedtouchconf/rev4fw.zip
    these drivers

    Hope this helps. Feel the Ubuntu love.

    I'll warn you that the servers for Ubuntu will very likely be down on 1st June as they are updating Dapper Drake, the name of their new version.
