Good/Bad USB ADSL modems - opinions?
Posted on 2004-09-23
first, a disclaimer. I'm not a fan of USB ADSL modems, and am well aware of the perceived wisdom that they are bad and resource intensive. But...
I help out in my neighbourhood with broadband installs, and plenty of folk just want to get their pc onto broadband without the cost of routers, etc. And a USB modem will meet their needs and price point.
So, are there ones out there that are better than others? any comparative reviews? Some of the pc's I look at are somewhat challenged on the hardware front, and I don't want to add to their load....
I'm in the UK btw, but most kit that you can get in the States or Continental Europe is available here - and finally, another disclaimer, I posted this first to the Wireless forum on ee, but I think this is more of a High Traffic Area!
