Aaahh wonderful Telstra and their "all in one" bundle bungles. Pink i'll need a bit more info here but i'm sure you can configure a connection without using the supplied CD. The CD is mainly for modem set-up and as you have said your modem is not on BigPond supported list so you need to configure your modem manually.

Are you trying to run wireless on your new PC or cable connection ?
Does your modem have a "browser interface" you can access through IE ?
What operating system are you using ?
Have you configured windows networking between the two PC's yet ?
Do you have a firewall other than the windows one ?
I'm not as think as you drunk I am

Am I correct in assuming you want more than one computer hooked up to the internet? You will need a router

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
