I have a Packard Bell igo4450 laptop & am a victim of the winmodem problem.
My laptop has 4 USB ports but no serial (9 pin) com port that most external modems connect to.
So, can anyone recommend a modem that is suitable for me & is guaranteed to work with opensuse 10?
Is there any external modems that plug into the USB and are detected properly by suse?
If not can I still use a serial port modem with a USB to serial connector??
Please reply if you have had a similar experience & have had success with overcoming this problem.
ps. I live in the UK, so please make recommendations from familiar hardware stores such as dixons.co.uk or pcworld.co.uk
