HI,

Ive just been given a mac, and altho i kinda know my way around them im stuck on this problem.

Previously i had a pc which i would connect to my broadband isp with a us robotics sureconnect modem.

I have downloaded the drivers to allow it to work on osx on the mac which all worked fine.

The problem is that my isp - Nildram - require me to dial up first to connect. This mean that on windows i would set up a dial up account with my user name and password with a phone number (any number)

ON the mac it only see my modem as needing a user name and password in the preferences PPPoE section, but no phone number box, which i presume is the problem.

Does anyone know any way of fixing this????

THanx

Well ive narrowed it down now, All my drivers for my modem have installed but to connect to nildram i must connect through the modem port.

Problem is my modem isnt in the list and i cant find any modem scripts online or anything to get it there ?

Nothing on us robotics site either

Any ideas????

Thanx
