    Default USB Modem

    Well, here I go again after a long absence! Still trapped on the rural dialup, and looking for a new USB modem since I think the one I've been using for four years needs replacing. I note with disgusted suprise that Apple no longer carries them on the website. Any and all suggestions to sources and/or alternate ideas (seriously short of Satelite reception or broadband which still ain't on the way).
    Presently have Apple external USB modem 56kbps (var.92)

    Best regards.

    Red face Whoops

    Wrong part of the forum. Sorry folks. Maybe Ricks would do me the favour of moving this to next door Flea Market?

    I moved that for ya, Rick is still asleep. Old men gotta rest you know.

    Here is a used one bit pricey at 60$ but the used one on amazon was 180$ so maybe not.

    There are other brands that are cheaper but then you have drivers to contend with that may or may not survive an OS update
