Hi,

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

Thanks,
Djme.
