Netgear 602

I am looking at a wireless package for 54G broadband from Netgear from here
http://www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk/Shop/ShopDetail.asp?ProductID=537&CategoryID=80&ShopGroupID=12

All looks good apart from the 'required spec' sheet on the page for the 602 modem. It states that OS supported include Windows and Mac - no mention of Linux.

However, as this is effectively a router and has a LAN port, I guess I can plug in to the WAP via LAN and access via an IP address and a browser, tkaing the OS out of the equation?

Does this sound right and has anyone experience of the DM602 with Linux?[/url]

Hope I'm not muddying the waters too much but I use a Netgear DG814 (with Windows!) which is administered via a built-in web server. As you suggested, since this is taking place via http & tcp/ip there shouldn't be any reliance on any particular operating system.
So, I'm using a different model with the wrong os... but I reckon the 602 is bound to have a very similar web interface to the 814 and my mixed-up advice still stands!

Sounds like a recommendation :? Wink

A bit more digging shows that the 602 is more of a router than a modem, which tends to mean that it will work driverless on Red Hat.

I mailed broadbandbuyer at 9am this morning and no reply but 20seconds holding with Netgear technical support got me through to a helpful guy who found the installation instructions for Linux - which would point to a 'yes'!

Any more info appreciated as this (see origianal link) looks like the kit I will buy during next week...
