Default Speedtouch 330 - Mac OS X 10.4.x Installation

Some folks may be interested in this as it seems to cause a lot of problems.

Assuming that you have upgraded to or originally have Apple Mac with OS 10.4.x installed, you will first need to run the Speedtouch Installer that comes with the Alcatel Speedtouch 330 as normal.

During the installation, you will receive two error messages which you can safely ignore and at this point. Do not connect the Speedtouch to your Mac, regardless of the prompt to do so as it will not be recognised anyhow.

Using a temporary backup dialer or an alternative location to connect from, download the Speedtouch 330 USB upgrade for Mac OS X 10.4.x from the following URL:

Speedtouch 330 upgrade for Tiger

Once downloaded, run SpeedTouchUSB.pkg and follow the instructions as normal. After the Speedtouch Installer has finished, connect up the Speedtouch USB Modem and go into your Network Preferences menu (apple > system preferences > network)

You will see that a new network port has been detected - this means that your Speedtouch 330 USB modem has been detected by Tiger so press OK. Click the show menu and select SpeedTouch USB from the list; you can leave the Location at Automatic.

From the Modem pull down menu under the Modem tab, select Speedtouch USB Modem and click onto PPP. Finally, enter the login details provided by your ISP, set the telephone number to 0 and click Dial Now.

Apologies if this issue has already been addressed on this forum.

hI pWN
This is my first post

i have just bought a MacG4 which is OSX 10.3.9.
Ive stupidly managed to misplace the disc i got with my Speedtouch 330modem however,,so i cant get online with the MAC.

i downloaded thE relevant software for MAC and made a disc,
but the MAC still insists on having the original disc
i even tried it with the stuff from the link you have posted,,just in case.
Still no luck im afraid. i originally bought the MAC 2nd hand,,
solely to use with music a recording machine i bought.
as my current pc had proved to be unsuitable.
G4 turned out to be incompatible also,,which is just typical of my luck lately

i eventually got my 5 yr old pc back,,
and the recording machine worked with that.again,,typical
so the MAC has been an ornament ever since.
i would just like to be able to get online with it,to see what all the fuss is about,,and becaUse im so sick of the crap pc's involve
do you think there is any way i can do this without the original disc?

If your Mac is 'airport' enabled, why not get a wireless router and a PCI wireless card or ethernet port for your PC and get them both online ?
That way, you don't need any drivers or CD's for a router.
If you can keep your head when those around are losing theirs, maybe you just don't understand the situation.........
