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! Dave "gloating" Shaw Spartan International, Inc.

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. cjg +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +---
