I've had mine for quite a while and haven't needed to price shop for one lately...Good luckDave[ 01-26-2002: Message edited by: DaveGee ]</p> Reply 2 of 3 sapi Posts: 207member January 27, 2002 2:58AM thanks for your response...so you're saying do not buy one of these:<a href="http://www.draytek.com.tw/Vigor/p-miniV128.htm" target="_blank">http://www.draytek.com.tw/Vigor/p-miniV128.htm</a>it's ? 40.00 in a shop around the corner... (BTW, it's not for me, I'm a happy cable user, but for a potential new iMac user)your explanation why to use one of the others is very good, can you or anyone else also explain why he shouldn't buy the ? 40.00 one?Thanks Reply 3 of 3 sawtooth Posts: 28member January 28, 2002 6:33PM Hi, Im using the MiniVigor in Ireland for 64K access, or dual channel 128k. It works fine for me via usb and is handy as it can be used with Windows, Linux machines as well. Os X driver isn't very mature yet but I have had no problems so far. Small and cheap too.
