Hey there,

Wondering if anyone can help?

I am looking into getting an iMac G5 soon and I have a question to ask.
I use broadband internet at home provided by Zen, on my Windows PC I just plug the cable from the phone socket into the internal adsl modem. I notice that iMac's only come with a dial up modem. Is there any way to connect to adsl internet without going wireless or using an external modem?

Thankyou

If you are still going to have the Windows PC, you could set it to share the internet then connect the G5 to it with a crossover ethernet cable.

I didn't know they made such a thing as an internal DSL modem, but I bet you could find an external one on ebay for not very much money, I think I sold my old one over a year ago for only $50 on ebay.
QUOTE Thanks
