"Not for MacIntosh User"
Category : Commentary/NotforMac.txt
How often we hear this. I subscribed to SingNet broadband for my home today. I got the usual "Macs not supported" thing from the counter staff. But I managed to speak to a technical staff and we agreed that the Alcatel Speed Touch Ethernet ADSL Modem, which they only support for the PC, should work with the Mac.
I got the modem and, not willing to wait till next week (which is when my SingNet line gets activated), I did a test using my current PacNet broadband line. I swiped out PacNet's SpeedStream Ethernet modem and swiped in SingNet's Alcatel, all on the fly. Everything works.
