Just get a different cable modem that will work with your provider. Call them and ask what different modems they support.

"As if he didn't already ask the question he needed help to"

Yeah i see that but i thought he'd benefit from an actual chat through a messaging program rather than waiting for contnual and delayed threads from me.

and in reply then. no 10.3 is not officially supported although it *may* work!, i have installed it on several 10.3 machines and its worked fine, but obviously you dont want to order it on the offchance of it working!

If you want my honest advice then id forget the voyager, plus of course its not much use if you want to share your connection between 2 macs.

Basically you can use any router that supports 10.30, be it wireless or wired. BT also make a decent wireless router, the voyager 2000, i'm not sure offhand wether it supports 10.3 so you'd have to check.

in general my advice owuld be to just fnd a router that you are certain will work with 10.3, there should be plenty out there, and these guys will know tons more about compatible hardware than me.

also, did you check www.pipex.net? thats who i use (traitor) but theyre a fair bit cheaper than BT

Im currently using an imac with panther 10.3, and we had BT broadband installed last week, it worked fine with the voyager 100. we have now switched to a netgear router, but we encountered no problems with the voyager.
