usb wireless modems in oz

Forums: 

Hello,

Here in oz we have a problem with ISP's not providing support for Linux on their modems. I asked a Telstra Bigpond tech why not and he said that linux is too hard, get another operating system. I can't keep Windows going here, it is not hard enough so at present am denied access to internet at home. A independant tech tells me that it would only take them half an hour to make the modems compatable with Linux. I think i know why they don't but better not say................Jed Stuart
