dear sir/madam
is there any software for broadband services or it is a hardware that makes a computer connected with broadband?
please tell me in brief?

it depends what u use, u need software to use the hardware needed to connect, they usually supply this when u buy broadband. I have BT ADSL broadband, and for the adsl hardware you need a disc to install it so it works properly Razz

Broadband is a hardware thing. I think what you're asking is for broadband with your dial up modem. If this is the case, the answer is, your modem can't be used for broadband. A broadband modem is necessary. I have verizon DSL and they set up my line for DSL and sent me a modem to hook up to my computer. Not necessarily in that order. In fact it took 1.5 months after I received the modem that they finally got the line set up. Technical problems they said. Anyway I don't know how the cable companies do it, but I'm guessing they give you a modem also.
If they don't give you a modem, you can bet there's a modem somewhere. I hope this is the answer you were looking for.

*If you use win98 or win95, the provider will give you a CD - a dialer program called PPPOE dialer.

Hardware needed:

That's it.
