Is this the 302G that Xtra is providing free with it's broadband
offerings? ... Seems to be something a little strange with the firmware
loaded on it ...

I use the above modem, and have no problems with Firefox under linux ...
(can't say I was too bothered trying anything else)

Lynx will probably break if there is javascript funkiness going on ...

On my particular modem, the web front end was (and still is) seriously
brain dead.  My other equipment was already configured to use
192.168.x.x ... so I really didn't want to go changing all my equipment
to 10.x.x.x ... in the end I telneted into the unit and configured from
there.  To be honest, if it wasn't the cost, I wouldn't have bothered
getting as far as I have with this one ...

I wouldn't mind if someone could point me in the direction of how to get
around my SPA-3000 problems with one-way audio - but only if someone on
freshtel calls me ... but until I get my asterisk box going, that's
sorta off topic ;)

Cheers all,
