I'm moving out of my current apartment very soon, thus I have no more
need of my ADSL-modem. This ADSL-modem (Zyxel Prestige 645MP) doesn't
need any non-free driver (or indeed, any drivers at all). I'm willing
to pay shipment for it and give it to you, if you in return promise to
stop using your current ADSL-modem, drop support for the driver and
request for removal (or at least do not opppose such a request from
another DD) of the driver.
(DISCLAIMER: This of course relies on the ADSL-modem working for you
too; I'm not that well into phone-systems in different countries to know
if if would work...)
