Its very odd i think im gonna hold back for now and see if sagem release a driver when the retail version hits the shelves. otherwise its a new modem!! Know any cheap usb modems, that work:-) TRev

I am not up on this wireless stuff do you have the router pluged straight into your pc? via the ethernet cable? no dongle? just out of interest do you have the oem version of vista?

Yes i have the OEM version. This particular Router is completely wired, Not wireless. It's a very simple setup. Instead of going into the computer via USB, You go via Ethernet out of the router. Obviously the router has line in from the wall line.

I have just recived an email from sagem telling me that a driver for the 800/840 modem is under development for vista so i think i will wait and see what that works like!!! thanks for your help Trev

Got mine to work setting up a dialup with the ISDN channel with a line type of 64K digital. Then entered the account details. Seems to work OK but would much rather have the proper driver and have the thing working as it should.
