Thanks, Carl, I didn't know that.

BTW, I downloaded and installed the free version of ZoneAlarm Saturday.  Not
bad - I had no idea I was being pinged so often when I was connected!

I also did some of the tweaks and measurements at dslreports.com.  Before I
touched anything their test showed downloads at 100 kbps and uploads at 220
kbps.  After I made their recommended changes, downloads tested out at over
1,000 kbps!  And in a real-world download test, downloading the update for
Netscape Communicator 4.76 ran at an average of 153 kbps for 11.6 megabytes.
Very nice!

If you are using a DUN connection to your ISP (I think you said BellSouth)
then you are doing PPPoE.  The DSL router has a PPPoE interface that
simulates the dial up to the DSL provider.  Even with the DSL router you can
still connect/disconnect via a software command.  The linksys model we have
allow us to connect to the router via a Web interface, and from there we can
tell the router to connect/disconnect.
