I want to switch from AOL to Tiscali. My current modem from AOL is a BT Voyager 105 USB. Can anyone tell me if this is compatible with Tisali & if I should anticipate any problem with the switch over?
Thanks in adavnce.

I should think you can use your existing modem, but I think Tiscali supply SagemFast 800 free. They did when I went with them. I am still with Tiscali but eventually I bought my own ADSL Ethernet modem which I find more reliable.

I've used the same USB modem (speedtouch 330) with three broadband ISP's with no problem.

Yes, but you will have to create your own connection as their s/ware will try to install their modem.

You could consider buying a netgear DG835 combined modem, firewall and router taking a long term view, firewall is super, works with any ISP

Agree with all the above would recommend you dump your USB modem and move to a ethernet modem instead. BT Voyager 205 is my modem of choice works great. One small word of caution if buying it secondhand like on e bay make sure it is not locked to BT. Sometimes when BT provide them to a customer who is using Bt as ISP they are locked and can't be used with another ISP. Most aren't but be aware.
