    USB ext. modem with MacMini
    I have a China Bird usb modem ( I am in Guatemala and using Tigo cellular service ) and it works with my Imac and my old G4
    I want to use it on my macmini (ver 10.7) I do not want to set up a network. when i connect it I can see the Icon on the desktop. Clicking on Icon takes me to MAC installation.
    Clicking on install it tells me that no modem is connected and I should do so now. It then disappears.
    Any suggestions

    Specs:
    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7 OSX10.11, iMac 2008 OSX10.11, MBP Late2011OSX10.11 , iPad Air, iPhone 3GS
    What version of OSX is on the iMac and G4? It sounds like there is no support for 10.7 Lion. Will check around and see what I can find.

    thanks for reply. Imac is 10.6.7, I do not know about G4 as I rarely use it
    it is my ultimate backup.
    MacMini is 10.7
    i fear that you might be right !!
