I would like to purchase a modem to use on a Linux laptop. Unfortunately, because it is a laptop, there is not serial port, just a USB. Is there a no-brainer solution to this? I am tired of recompiling kernels and kernel modules everytime I update my operating system, or change laptops. Is there a USB modem that will work out of the box? Is there a serial modem, and a USB-to-serial converter that will work out of the box? I don't mind price at this point, because my time is worth more than any modem. :thumbsup:

thanks for any help!

Will this work?



I do not like USB at all, so I would recommend the first two rather than the second two. If possible
