I tried using the Pay-As-You- Go option from 3 (Â£49 for the modem + Â£10 top up which lasts a month before it expires) and successfully managed to connect without any issues. There is no automatic install of software like you get if you have XP but using the Network Connection option on the desktop it was simple enough to set up.
The problem was 3's interface. With PAYG you have to register a top up when you first connect, except that the re-direct doesn't take you to the right page, instead you have to go to my3.three.co.uk to top up. Th top up is not linked to your accunt login so you have to type in the phone number of the modem like you would for a mobile phone. Double and triple check the phone number as I stupidly ended up transposing two numbers and giving someone else 10 quids worth of surfing time.
I didn't get on with the account and registering a credit card for later top ups so I cancelled (you have three days to cancel and you don't get back the airtime you bought) .
Going to try Orange's pay monthly offer next as they seem to have more coverage...

This deposited html pages [in /media/3Connect/disk1/ConfigAddOns] from which my My3 account can be accessed.
So it is possible for me to top-up my account, and to see how much download allowance i have left [providing that i can get on-line].

Others, mostly the older series of modems out there, are just modems which require software installed from the CD to operate.
