    speedtouch drivers? - and compatable router help please

    hey

    a friend has a speedtouch modem, trying to connect a laptop but its saying theres no driver, now they dont remember if they got a disc when they got it moons ago, can anyone confirm before the hunt for it begins, or can it be downloaded for free? once this is on the laptop it will pick up the speedtouch net connection yes?

    also can anyone point me in the right direction to a compatible router to connect the speedtouch so the laptop can be wireless, thank you

    Seem to remember Speedtouch modems were sent out by AOL and were made by Thomson, you should find the right driver at - ]http//ww…spx.

    If your friend is with AOL just give them a ring and ask for a wireless router, they usually just send them out.

    You cant use a router with a speedtouch modem ,You would have to set up a network through a PC and frankly you are just better off buying a modem / router,As for Driver sorry donyt know,

    Lol dont leave me any more rep its starting to look like im a rep junkie.
    Most modems now have wireless routers built in,Orange use the livebox but any modern ADSL router will do,Rather than buy just a router when the time comes buy a ADSL router,
    until then the drivers you need are here,

    Yes this will run on the Lappy

    this is the driver for windows98 and XP thomson.net/Glo…zip

    and this is the driver for Vista

    USb modems are ok for connecting a single PC/laptop but are a pain in the a for a wireless setup,You could ring orange and see if they will send you a livebox but if not just buy a ADSL router,:thumbsup:

    Yes a netgear like yours will do as long as it is ADSL ( telephone line) and not a cable ( virgin) one .The speedtouch plugs into usb but the ADSL router / modem plugs into the ethernet socket (same as yours) and doesnt need drivers,
