External 56k Modems for iMac G5

Recommended Posts

Looking for anyone with knowledge about modems. I just got my iMac G5 (PowerPC), and want an alternative to the $50 Apple USB Modem. Does anyone know of less expensive external USB modems, or do all modems require you to install a driver. Obviously most companies don't have OSX drivers b/c there was no need until recently.

 

I have done some research but don't have a lot of time (and no knowledge) to work with. Here's an example of a Modem I found on eBay that only has Windows drivers. I called them and the sales reps have no idea if the modem can work without a driver.

Any help? THANKS!

The modem will not work without a driver, there are a bunch included with OS X, but it's highly doubtful that one included with OS X would work with this 3rd party modem.

 

I found a few USB modems on Amazon.com and one on Staples.com and they were more expensive than Apple's.
