I dumped a Siemens 4200 ADSL (from BigPond), it was a really cheap and not so good (to say the least) modem. It had a proprietary F/W and I could not find a way to update it, I think it's really not supported anymore or there was no F/W for Australia (if I remember correctly). I think it's better to buy your own modem, lots of options not expensive these days.

Hi all,

Does anyone have any recommendations regarding Linux friendly ISP's for Broadband in Perth northern suburbs?

I'm looking to get [preferably] ADSL2+ service - where my house is would connect to the Girrawheen Exchange.

I'm considering going with Optus - [so I can bundle my mobile-phone if possible.

Looking at the Optus website, they seem to supply [standard] a Siemens 4200 ADSL Home Modem with their default plans - has anyone got any experience connecting these up to a linux box?

Any suggestions/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance all,

David Buddrige. 8-)
