Which ADSL Modem?

  Arthur Dent 21:38 11 Sep 2003

I've just signed up with Freedom 2 Surf and am now looking round for an ADSL modem.

I'm thinking of going for a USB modem (just because it's less hassle to install) and don't know which one to go for?

Any suggestions - I'm running windows XP.

Would you recommend getting firewall software or is the XP built in one OK?

Get a cheap PCI modem, £40. It is half the price of USB. Very easy to install. Just put it in one of your PCI slots, and run the driver disc, takes 2 minutes. :) :) :)
