Hi,

That link is for the Vista driver, there's no mention on the page of it working with Windows 7?

It appears as though Brian is, to put it politely, preparing to water the fire hydrant.

Sorry dwarf, the op does not have access to a router, we need drivers for the actual dsl modem.

You don't actually have to get the router from your ISP. Instead, you can get them from your local computer shop (in the UK: Currys, PCWorld, Comet, etc) and then set it up using the guide that I linked to.

Here is the same (or very much similar) model that I have from Currys: Currys - Shop for Network Accessories - NETGEAR DG834UK Wired ADSL Firewall Router

You should be able to set it up and keep on the same pricing plan as before. Another advantage of using a router comes when reinstalling your OS (or even trying an alternative, such as Linux). Because the configuration is stored within the router (some USB modems also require configuration data to be stored on your PC) and because no drivers are required for the Ethernet connection (other than those supplied with the OS itself and/or the motherboard), it means that you can reinstall, connect up your router and you're immediately ready to go online.

Sure, if it was my PC I'd just do that - it would save a lot of faffing about... But it's my dads PC, and he's already fed up with the cost of the PC and accessories so far and isn't impressed at the thought of paying even more for a router he didn't realise he needed in the first place. So for the time being it a case of getting a workaround or trying to weasel a free router out of tiscali. Or just changing ADSL suppliers...
